Orientalism: Western Conceptions of the Orient
"Edward Said surveys the history and nature of Western attitudes towards the East, considering orientalism as a powerful European ideological creation - a way for writers, philosophers and colonial administrators to deal with the 'otherness' of eastern culture, customs and beliefs. He traces this view through the writings of Homer, Nerval and Flaubert, Disraeli and Kipling, whose imaginative depictions have greatly contributed to the West's romantic and exotic picture of the Orient."

Which Classic Author Is Your Soulmate | Anton Chekov: Calm and contemplative, you need someone who shares your desire to lie in a hammock in the Russian countryside, drink champagne, and think about the meaning of life. Both of you know that love, alas, is a fickle emotion, so you must cherish it for the fleeting moment in which it graces you.
Anton Chekov, Russian writer (1860-1904)
Anton Chekhov - one of the most handsome men ever. He was a doctor and writer and I believe more than ever I was born at the wrong time and wrong place.
You got: Anton Chekhov. (Yes! One of my favorites!!) Calm and contemplative, you need someone who shares your desire to lie in a hammock in the Russian countryside, drink champagne, and think about the meaning of life. Both of you know that love, alas, is a fickle emotion, so you must cherish it for the fleeting moment in which it graces you. (and yet I chose the medical school. When am I going to have time to lay in a hammock?)
Anton Chekhov. "How unbearable at times are people who are happy, people for whom everything works out." . . . "Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass."
Anton Pavlovich Chekhov was a Russian physician, dramaturge and author who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short stories in history. Born: January 29, 1860, Taganrog, Russia Died: July 15, 1904, Badenweiler, Germany Spouse: Olga Knipper (m. 1901–1904)

A rare and...
The arrival by Shaun Tan This "silent" or wordless book – crossover between graphic novel and picture book – will, without doubt, become a classic. It is a sensitive story about the fears, but also joys of immigrants in an alien and strange new land. Priceless. Tan was a previous winner of the Astrid Lindgren memorial award, the biggest international picture book prize.

"Отцы и дети" (Тургенев, 1862) | "Fathers and Sons" (Turgenev, 1862) | http://az.lib.ru/t/turgenew_i_s/text_0040.shtml
Considered to be the first modern Russian novel, Fathers and Sons by Ivan Turgenev explores the growing divide between liberal elitists and the youthful nihilist movement, which despised the old-guard and fought against traditional Orthodox religious views, but -- as the main character Bazarov discovered -- often struggled with reconciling feelings of romantic love.

Orlando by Virginia Woolf. "A semi-biographical novel based in part on the life of Woolf's lover Vita Sackville-West, it is generally considered one of Woolf's most accessible novels. The novel has been influential stylistically, and is considered important in literature generally, and particularly in the history of women's writing and gender studies."
