About this Item

Paperback. 208 pages. A novel set in the frenetic gold rush of post-communist Russia before its all-too brief taste of raw capitalism collapses in the great economic crash of 1998. The brilliant but volatile Godunev, a former Moscow kiosk worker, returns from New York and Miami hoping to make a quick fortune while the countrys assets are still up for grabs. Using his hipster credentials to infiltrate Moscows aspirational emerging super-rich biznismen scene, he gets caught up in machinations to privatize the Kremlin, and eventually finds himself out of his depths in a Russia of oligarchs, gangsters, models and prostitutes that is hurtling towards its own demise. But amidst the violence, callousness and audacity of the time, Gudonev also reflects many of his countrymens sentiments: the passion of relationships; the extremities of life; a re-assertion of Russian culture; and a pervasive love-hate relationship with the US and the West. Vijai Maheshwari is an Indian-American writer who has lived in post-Communist Eastern Europe since the early 1990s. He started a writers workshop in Prague, was editor-in-chief of Russian Playboy, a correspondent for Britains Financial Times and Moscows infamous alternative paper, the eXile. He is the founder and editor of B-East, Eastern Europes provocative lifestyles and fashion glossy. Before arriving in Eastern Europe, he studied Physics under iconic scientist and Nobel laureate Richard Feynman. This item ships from multiple locations.

About this title

Synopsis:

A novel set in the frenetic gold rush of post-communist Russia before its all-too brief taste of raw capitalism collapses in the great economic crash of 1998. The brilliant but volatile Godunev, a former Moscow kiosk worker, returns from New York and Miami hoping to make a quick fortune while the country's assets are still up for grabs. Using his hipster credentials to infiltrate Moscow's aspirational emerging super-rich "biznismen" scene, he gets caught up in machinations to privatize the Kremlin, and eventually finds himself out of his depths in a Russia of oligarchs, gangsters, models and prostitutes that is hurtling towards its own demise. But amidst the violence, callousness and audacity of the time, Gudonev also reflects many of his countrymen's sentiments: the passion of relationships; the extremities of life; a re-assertion of Russian culture; and a pervasive love-hate relationship with the US and the West.
