“This hilarious and poignant anti-historical novel is a vertiginous journey through the Russian Revolution, Stalin’s purges, Nazi concentration camps, underground anarchist gatherings, and the KGB network. A great master of tragicomedy, Alexander Motyl shows with eminent irony that twentieth-century history
was funnier than Joyce imagined and much more horrible than Orwell prefigured.”
-Yohanan Petrovsky-Shtern, Associate Professor in Jewish History, Northwestern University
