The Brezhnev's trilogy (Russian: Трилогия Брежнева) (1978–79) was a series of three memoirs published under name of Leonid Brezhnev:

  • The Small Land (Russian: Малая земля)
  • Rebirth (Russian: Возрождение)
  • Virgin Lands (Russian: Целина)

As a part of the publicity campaign, Brezhnev was immediately given the Lenin Prize, the highest Soviet literary award, after publication of the trilogy.[1]

The books became a butt of numerous political jokes in their own right.
