In 1992, Sorokin’sCollected Storieswas nominated for the Russian Booker Prize; in 1999, the publication of the controversial novelBlue Lard, which included a sex scene between clones of Stalin and Khrushchev, led to public demonstrations against the book and to demands that Sorokin be prosecuted as a pornographer; in 2001, he received the Andrei Biely Award for outstanding contributions to Russian literature.
