ABSTRACT
An introduction to the book, Contextualizing Transition: Interviews with Contemporary Russian Writers & Critics, is presented. It provides an overview of interviews with Russian authors and critics. The writer of the book interviewed the authors and critics in the locations of their choice. She tried to make them feel at ease and comfortable with the process itself. She interviewed author Victor Erofeev in his apartment near the Stalinist skyscrapers occupied by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Meanwhile, Igor Iarkevich was initially cautious about giving an interview and he struck the writer as someone with whom it would be difficult to have an open and sincere conversation about his own career.
