--


"[A] riveting, urgent book ... Pomerantsev is one of the most perceptive, imaginative and entertaining commentators writing on Russia today and, much like the country itself, his first book is seductive and terrifying in equal measure."--The Times (UK)

"[A] tale of descending into and eventually emerging from Moscow's hallucinogenic reality."--Foreign Affairs


"A brilliant, entertaining, and ultimately tragic book about not only Russia, but the West."--Tablet Magazine


"A patchwork tapestry that leaves you shaking your head in disbelief."--The Guardian


"A riveting portrait of the new Russia with all its corruption, willful power and spasms of unforgettable, poetic glamor. I couldn't put it down."--Tina Brown


"A scintillating take on a twisted reality."--Prospect Magazine


"Brilliant collection of sketches...powerful, moving and sometimes hilarious."--Washington Times

"Captivating...keen observations."--New York Times Book Review

"Enthralling... his exquisite rendering of mind-control techniques is chilling."--Times Literary Supplement
