Bio: Not that long ago, I finished my undergrad studies and a completed a big ol' thesis and a grant about the only gay Soviet author, Evgenii Kharitonov. Now, I'm aspiring to be a Russian Lit aspirantka (grad student); I plan to write my dissertation on representations of prostitution in Fin de Siecle Russia discourse. It follows then that I am very interested in books that treat central issues of Victorian Europe, especially mystico-metaphysico-philosophico-medico-sexual ones. I dig Weininger, Nietzsche, Vladimir Solov'iov, V. V. Rozanov, Aleksandr Blok, Max Nordau, Kraft-Ebing, and other fiction and non-fiction literati of the Belle Epoque. I love Decadent and Symbolist prose, poetry, manifestoes, etc. Also, I enjoy reading medical and juridical texts from this era. Any literature that touches on Victoriana or seems like it should would bring tears of joy to my reading eyes. I like perusing monographs on NY and LA garage and punk bands. I love digging deeper and deeper into the dirt that is the Divine Feud between Joan and Bette. Plus, I'm a sucker for Jacqueline Susann and her spawn. In return, I am steeped in all things Russian and gay and can make very good recommendations. I've got a whole bunch of lit/cultural theory under my belt that I'd be more than happy to bust out for you. Plus, I've actually read a lot of contemporary American fiction; and Japanese lit from the 20s-present (sooo good). I heart Kobo Abe and Haruki Murakami.
Interests: 20th/21st century japanese fiction, anything marginal and russian, decadent and symbolist lit, french and russian avant-garde literary/artistic circles in the mid to late 19th century, garage/psychedelic/punk rock n roll, german pseudo-medical/pseudo-metaphysical treatises from the turn of the century., gogol', groupies, prostitution through the ages, record collecting, spleen
