The Anti-Soviet Soviet Union

By Vladimir Voinovich
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1986
325 pp. $19.95
Purchase

A distinguished Russian novelist, now in emigration, writes a sprightly book about life in the U.S.S.R.: the big bosses, the party hacks, the watchdogs of art and literature, and especially the ordinary people. Full of anecdotes and remembered experiences, it is laced with humor often sharp, occasionally flat, but the light touch does not disguise the bite of the author's message.
