Dmitry Bykov was a force in Russian cultural life; now he’s effectively in exile, probably for as long as Putin remains in power. Bykov speaks with David Remnick about the state of Russia—and Russians—under Putinism, which he describes as “the final stage of Russian decline.” His country, he says, is the land of the “most free slaves.” Plus, the YouTuber known as Nerdwriter talks with the producer Ngofeen Mputubwele about the essay in the age of the Internet. And Kelefa Sanneh, who writes about music and more for The New Yorker, recommends some of the notable songs playing on country radio right now.
