In honor of this being an Olympic year, we begin year five of Chtenia
with an issue devoted to the theme of Sport. It's far from what you'd normally expect of sports writing. There's a memoir about childhood and the beginning of football (soccer) in Russia, perhaps the most famous horse race and chess match in Russian literature, a science fiction tale about dreaming as sport, and a view of sport as seen by a top sports interpreter... Included authors range from Tolstoy and Ivanov to Kuprin, Olesha and Vysotsky. For a complete table of contents, visit here
