About this product
- DescriptionRussia has fascinated outsiders for centuries, and according to Alicia Chudo, it is high time this borscht stopped. In this hilarious send up of Russian literature and history, Chudo takes prisoners as she examines Russia's great tradition of unreadable geniuses, revolutionaries who can't hit the broad side of a tsar, and Soviets who like their vodka but love their tractors. Written in the tradition of 1066 and All That, The Pooh Perplex, and The Classics Redefined, And Quiet Flows the Vodka will, with any luck, be the final word on the ghastly first two millennia of Russian literature, history, and culture.
- Author BiographyAlicia Chudo is the author of Children of Menippus: Despisers of Humanity from Antiquity to the Present and is best known as the founder of the discipline of misanthropology. Andrew Sobesednikov is an assistant fellow of the Interlocutors Foundation for the Promotion of One-Sided Debate. Both are pseudonyms of Gary Saul Morson, the author of many books and the founding editor of the Series in Russian Literature and Theory Series, published by Northwestern University Press.
