    It is between Bulgakov and Chekhov - the former because he wrote Master and Margarita - one of my favorite books of all time, and the latter for his short stories.

    My favourite is no other than Leo Tolstoy for his remarkable Karenina.

    Definitely Fydor Dostoevsky.  I didn't think a book as long as The Brothers Karamazov could be as gripping as it was.

    I'll say Vladimir Nabokov. His wordplay is incredible.

    I have two men in my mind. Leo Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoevsky.

    I have read and loved Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina" and I know I'm going to like "War and Peace". However, my absolute favorite Russian author is Alexander Pushkin. His "Eugene Onegin" is one of the best things I have ever read. Even the lousy English translation I have couldn't hide the perfection he achieved.
