Product description

Review

'[A] darkly seductive tour through new Russia... As a political and social commentator Bennett is shrewd and humane, but she is equally accurate, heartfelt and knowing describing the tastes of caviar - full of promise and mystery; the taste of dreams' [Book of the Week] - The Times (Play)

Vanora Bennett has written an original and hypnotically readable book to celebrate her obsession with Russia and caviar - The Sunday Times

The writing is both fresh and acutely observant... Enormously engaging... this is a charming read, a highly personal take on a disturbing subject - Spectator

Bennett has a marvellous feel for language... the book is propelled by the sheer vigour - and often virtuosity - of the writing - Financial Times --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
