Summary
When a scientist experimenting on humans in a sanatorium near Moscow gives a growth serum to a dwarf oil mogul, the newly heightened businessman runs off with the experimenter's wife and a series of mysterious deaths and crimes commences. Fantastical and wonderfully strange, this political parable has an uncanny resonance with today's Russia under Putin. A witty, playful, brave and incisive work that blends science fiction with political satire, Fardwor, Russia! Is a must-read about contemporary Russia and the hilarious and frightening follies of power
