One of the most ambitious and wildly inventive novels to have come out of Russia in years, this short novel embraces the Brehznev years, the USSR's disintegration, and capitalist shock therapy in the post-Soviet bloc.
The eponymous hero, part of a brood of bored science students, helps concoct a strategy game set in different eras where each "ruler" of his territory competes in Orwellian permanent war. But the KGB uncovers highly plausible and suspicious military plans and a long penance for each "combatant" ensues. All too late, Istemi is the first to realize the mysterious and disturbingly prophetic nature of a seemingly innocent invention. He is powerless as events long foretold for each unfold, including a hellish tour of duty in Afghanistan, incarceration in an asylum, and mindless bureaucratic drudgery—but what fate awaits Istemi as communist absurdist reality turns into postcapitalism nightmare?

Before the Iron Curtain was drawn back, writers like Milan Kundera gave us insights into life under socialist tyranny. Twenty years on, what is it like in those countries? Alexei Nikitin paints a grey picture of contemporary Ukraine – made worse by his frequent allusions to the weather (which tell us we have little to complain about).
The board game Diplomacy once enjoyed a certain vogue in the circle of my Young Liberal branch – taking place over a long weekend, it could prove fatal to relationships as new alliances were forged; the game has remained on the shelf for a long time. How much worse ... [ Показати всю рецензію ]
