Yama: The Pit is a book by Russian author Aleksandr Kuprin, first published in installments between 1909 and 1915. the book tells the story of a brothel, owned by Anna Markovna. A powerful novel that delves into the lives of the prostitutes who work there, and the clients who come and see them. Importantly, the inhabitants of the brothel are not presented as a mere plot point - they are given a voice as to their own hopes and dreams. The book caused a lot of controversy when it was published, and Kuprin's hoped-for-praise from Leo Tolstoy didn't come. However the book was praised by others for its social commentary.
