Synopsis (credit: back cover)

Moscow, January 2013. Bunin, the Ukrainian president, has joined other heads of state in an open-air swimming pool to celebrate the Fourth Centenary of the Romanov Dynasty.

Treading water, and drinking vodka with Putin, he's on top of his game and in fine health. Yet two years later Bunin undergoes a heart transplant, with serious repercussions ...

(Bought second-hand at Help the Rural Child Charity Bookshop, Sea Point.)

The book forms part of my permanent collection.

Journal Entry 2 by wingStoepbrakwing at Cape Town, Western Cape South Africa on Friday, June 30, 2017

I love reading books by this author and this has been the best of them all so far!

His approach and style are unique: primarily satire, but with so much humour, insight and pathos. His commentary on current affairs and the weird world of modern-day international politics is sharp and spot-on.

Each character is three-dimensional, and the quirky plot keeps the reader spellbound. It's the rare occurrence of a book that scores 9 on both the quality and the enjoyment scales.
