Pushkin's Second Wife: And Other Micronovels
Paperback  Paperback  
In this heartfelt collection of stories Druznhikov describes life in Russia before and after the collapse of Communism as well as the plight of Russian emigres in the USA in post - communist times. A tour guide is so in love with Pushkin that she lives with his wooden effigy, a businessman intent on enjoying his Kaif, a teacher informed that he wants to retire, a taxi driver taking his daughter along with him on his rounds. The characters to be found in this rambunctious volume are both recognizable and bizarre, capable of cowardly corruptions but also heroic honesties, oppressed and bewildered but also invigorated by the challenge that everyday life presents - whatever economic system they live under.
