The Pussy Riot Reading List

Nadia Tolokonnikova's husband is in the United States to receive the LennonOno grant for peace, awarded this year by Yoko Ono and Amnesty International to the Russian punk band Pussy Riot. Interviewed about how Nadia's doing in prison, her husband Petr said she spends most of her time reading: Foucault, Judith Butler, Slavoj Žižek, the Bible, and Tolstoy.

“One good thing about Russian prisons is that they have a halfway decent library,” said Verzilov, who was in the States this week to campaign for the release of the Pussy Riot Three. “No Foucault —s he gets that from outside — but good Russian classics!”
