I'm starting work on Vasily Grossman's Life and Fate, a 1000-page epic centring on Stalingrad and being the WWII counterpart to the great Russian realist epics of the 19th Century.

To be honest though, my favourite Russian writer is Nikolai Gogol, whose works manage to influence both the realist epics of Tolstoy and the surreal, claustrophobic paradoxes of Kafka.
