Rated 0

Russia, Prose: non-fiction, Travel writing

From the best-selling author of It's All Greek to Me! comes a wild tale of life and business in the brave new Russia. John Mole went to seek his fortune in the New Russia revolution with his Big Idea of setting up British baked potato restaurants to rival McDonald's and Pizza Hut, and came back with the rights for a revolutionary biotechnology for cleaning air pollution. In between he tangled with fantasists and scientists, Stalinists and Tolkeinists, hopeful oligarchs and hopeless biznismyen, A"muggers and, finally, the mafia. Sometimes sinister, often hilarious and always fascinating, this book is a Russian feast from caviar to samovar.
