Wladimir  Kaminer - Red Riding Hood Is Smoking on the Balcony


When the children have grown up, and the grandparents have become children again

Children are odd. And so are grandparents. Children grow up, get a mortgage, and refuse to touch the cheap booze they used to binge-drink at parties – while their grandparents rediscover a childlike pleasure in conquering the world and pushing the boundaries. Meanwhile, the younger generation prefers to stay at home, and to 'find' itself by living between the fridge and the computer.

In this new collection of stories, told with much love and humour, family man Wladimir Kaminer reveals the complicated relationship between the generations.

"Kaminer's great skill lies in his ability to examine the big questions of the day through the lens of those little, pointed, everyday events."
