In 1993 James Young began a series of journeys to post-glasnost Russia, uncovering a cockroach-plagued society on the verge of vodka-fuelled nervous breakdown. The result is this satirical book, which holds a looking glass up to a continent of growing tribalism emerging from the cracks of the collapsed Soviet system. It provides an account of today's Moscow from the bottom side up, taking readers on an odyssey through this strange no-man's-land where East meets West, where the old certainties have gone, the KGB men wear Italian suits, the Mafia tycoons style themselves on the Godfather films, and the rest are queuing to change dollars.
