Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, London, 2007. Paperback. Condition: Very Good. Moscow, January 2013. Bunin, the Ukrainian President, has joined other heads of state in an open air swimming pool, to celebrate the Fourth Centenary of the Romanov Dynasty. Treading water, and drinking vodka with Putin, he's on top of his game and in fine health. Yet two years later Bunin undergoes a heart transplant, with very serious repercussions.Rewind to the early '90s; the Soviet Union has crumbled and in the midst of a new independent Ukraine struggling to find its feet, a young Sergey Pavlovich Bunin is on the make. Casting aside a career as a catering manager he enters the political fray and begins the long and precarious journey to the top, at the same time looking after his impoverished mother and enfeebled brother. Spanning forty years, "The President's Last Love" is Kurkov's most ambitious work to date, and delivers an intricately woven and often hilarious political satire on life before and after the Iron Curtain. A colossus of a novel concerning love, power, corruption, lies and potatoes. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Seller Inventory # GOR001664874
