Fantasy. Pretty cool, and that’s considering that I don’t even normally like fantasy. Unless you meant you want to read Russian books in English, of course.

Mikhail Bulgakov, The Master and Margarita.
The book’s chief character is Satan, who appears in the guise of a foreigner and self-proclaimed black magician named Woland. Accompanied by a talking black tomcat and a “translator” wearing a jockey’s cap and cracked pince-nez, Woland wreaks havoc throughout literary Moscow. First he predicts that the head of noted editor Berlioz will be cut off; when it is, he appropriates Berlioz’s apartment. (A puzzled relative receives the following telegram: “Have just been run over by streetcar at Patriarch’s Ponds funeral Friday three afternoon come Berlioz.”) Woland and his minions transport one bureaucrat to Yalta, make another one disappear entirely except for his suit, and frighten several others so badly that they end up in a psychiatric hospital. In fact, it seems half of Moscow shows up in the bin, demanding to be placed in a locked cell for protection.

We by Yevgevny Zamyatin, great sci fi book, he is an awesome writer, two other great books he wrote are The Dragon and Soviet Heretic, he reviews Russian and American lit and compares writing styles in the Soviet Heretic book, you can find a lot of great authors and stories from this book.
he was exiled from Russia, and all his works were destroyed in his country, so it is difficult to find his stuff on literary websites for foreign authors, try amazon.com
