'A minor masterpiece of comic surrealism.' The Times 'Crazy, charming, a delight' John le Carre 'The most extraordinary debut in travel writing since "In Patagonia". A dark, sardonic and brilliant book which grows in stature with every page.' William Dalrymple'As an allegory it is powerful and frequently moving. As a tale it is tremendous fun. It is also a thing of beauty' Jan Morris 'There is pathos - and adventure - in spades... Stalin's Nose is an essential companion for anyone travelling to a part of the world still recovering from the horrors of the giant confidence trick that was communism.' Justin Marozzi, Financial Times 'It is a painful book of bitter old ages, or lives which have had their meanings repeatedly declared void. It is very hard and very good.'Guardian 'A Gogolesque tour in a Trabant: eccentric, amusing and chilling.' The Economist 'The wittiest, most surreal travel writing of recent years.' Frank Delaney 'The best book I've read for a long time.'John Wells
