Vadim Levental’s debut novel Masha Regina was nominated for the Russian Booker Prize and shortlisted for the Big Book award. Levental works as a books editor for Limbus Press in St Petersburg, widely known for its Russian editions of the World's best authors. In 2011, Levental authored the idea of The Literary Matrix series which includes literary essays by contemporary writers about canonical writers and poets included in Russian literature curricula.  This 4-volume project was recognized in mass-media as one of the most successful and most important literary projects in post-communist Russia.
