Red Russia
Among the many things Peter doesn’t know, he doesn’t know he’s an archetype, the Prince of Coins incarnate. He doesn’t know his fiancé is a fortune teller either. He doesn’t know Russian culture, politics, or language, but he does know American business. And he knows his fiancé speaks Russian. He thinks she can make him the new Tsar of the timber industry, but first they must survive a weekend with the Russian mob. Red Russia is the story of an American businessman and his interpreter in Russia, of business, lies, and deception, of fortunes bought and told.

Red Russia Review

    It’s one of the few books I feel the need to weigh in on with a compliment. It is brilliant. It is dark and funny. It is supernatural, paranormal, and esoteric. It is an irreverent drug and alcohol fuelled romp through violence and mayhem in Russia. But I should warn it has the potential to annoy. I thought I would be annoyed with the two color scheme of Red Russia (everything in red is Russian, everything in blue is a translation), but it worked, and it worked really well. The colors crept in s It’s one of the few books I feel the need to weigh in on with a compliment. It is brilliant. It is dark and funny. It is supernatural, paranormal, and esoteric.

The colors crept in slow enough for me to get accustomed to the style, so by the time the dialogue was flying along in Russian I completely understood the play on words when Russians used English. The other warning I might offer is this book makes use of alcohol, drugs, weapons, and profanity. If that’s you’re kind of weekend, then this book will leave you in awe.

    "fat american language" that genuinely made me laugh. there's quite a few good laughs in this book. i'd call it a fairly accurate (though exaggerated for comedy) look at russia today. taken too far of course, but what the hell, it's a comedy. [why are there two listings for this book? wth?]

    A very smart comedy. You can get lost in these pages. It’s a virtual playhouse for the intellect.

    drugs, dota, and reddit made this uniquely memorable. the metaphysics, mayhem, and comedy made it incredible.

    Having read the author's totally insane memoir, I moved right on to her first work of fiction out of sheer curiosity. The same creative imagination that got her into so much trouble as a teen has been used to good ends at last! Terribly funny fiction from the mastermind of trouble.
