The Esquire Literary Issue: For Reading and Listening

Every summer, Esquires produces a special collector’s literary issue for which the most prominent modern authors and journalists write stories. This year, it came out in a new format – musical and literary. The musical part of the issue is devoted to Viktor Tsoi and the traditional literary part continues the motif, with the authors creating audio versions of the their stories that are already available in the Storytel app for all subscribers to the service. What’s more, Esquire offers those without a subscription free access for 30 days by using this link. A QR code in the magazine provides access to the Storytel app and the collection of original stories.

The stories will also be published over time on the site.

The literary part of the issue address the question: «What will Moscow be like after the epidemic?». Contemporary authors composed stories especially for Esquire. They include: Sasha Filipenko, Anna Kozlova, Valeroy Pecheykin, Yevgeny Babushkin, Andrey Ryvkin, Dmitry Zakharov, Sofia Sinitskaya, Lyudmila Petrushevskaya and Yevgenia Nekrasova. Editor-in-Chief Sergey Minaev also wrote a story – his first after a long hiatus.
