The new site Books from Russia “is the official English language resource on contemporary Russian literature and the Russian publishing industry. Its aim is to promote new Russian writing by providing the international publishing community with in-depth and up-to-date information about contemporary Russian books, their authors and publishers, and facilitating means of collaboration with Russian partners.” This page shows recent books translated from Russian, and this one has excerpts. You can apply for grants to do a translation yourself. Hat tip to Lizok’s Bookshelf.
