Wingless Desire in Modernist Russia: Envy and Authorship in the 1920s "argues that the concept of envy underwent a peculiar transformation in the Russian Modernist prose of the 1920s due to a series of radical shifts in societal values, with each subsequent change thwarting Russia’s volatile axiological hierarchy." The book is now out with Lexington Books.
