Ever wonder what life is like in contemporary Russia? Journalist Oleg Kashin offers a strange, surreal glimpse in his novel Fardwor, Russia! A Fantastical Tale of Life under Putin—now available from Restless Books. Reminiscent of the works of Mikhail Bulgakov, the novel centers around a young scientist who invents a growth serum that leads to farsical and tragic consequences. On a more serious note, two months after delivering the manuscript to his publisher, Mr. Kashin was severely beaten in an attack with ties to the highest levels of government; fortunately, he recovered and now resides in Switzerland.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev (L) speaks with Oleg Kashin, a reporter with Russian newspaper Kommersant, who was brutally beaten in November 2010, in an attack police link to his muckraking investigations, during his visit to to Jericho on January 18, 2011. Kashin, who is undergoing rehabilitation in Israel, covered Medvedev’s visit to the Palestinian territory.

Ilyen plakatokat ragasztottak ki ma Moszkvaban.
