Wladimir  Kaminer - Goodbye, Moscow


100 years after the October Revolution: reflections on a country looking for its place in the world

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution, Wladimir Kaminer takes a look at the country of his birth and sees a country looking for itself.

The communist experiment came to an end to the applause of the free world; the people, however, are still there, and they need a perspective. Capitalism is tempting as a new model of success, but the Russians are looking in vain for a shady spot under the hard sun of finance. The towels of other countries have already been spread out. Instead of affluence, progress and freedom, repression and fear rule the day. The political leadership under Putin are adept at retaining power but not very much so at forming the future. Ignoring Europe, the path being taken goes into the past and towards isolation.

More than enough material for an affectionately desperate discourse with Russia.

“As philosophically breezy as head-shakingly satirical”
