"For Muireann Maguire [...] questions of genre ultimately transcend genre itself. As the title of her new study suggests, she finds her answers in the Gothic tradition, which she argues was alive and well in the Soviet Union (contrary to any reasonable assumption). In so doing, she provides a framework for rethinking Soviet culture in decidedly un-Soviet categories."
