by: Yevgeny Zamyatin

Publisher: Penguin Books (1924)


Staff Pick by comrade: NK

Written in 1919 but banned in Russia until 1988, Zamyatin's WE is a brilliant dystopian novel and a more than worthy companion to classics like 1984 and Brave New World. Worth a read for many reasons, among them its beautiful definition of the soul on page 89.
