Russian Disco, Paperback


Born in Moscow, Wladimir Kaminer emigrated to Berlin in the early '90s when he was 22.

Russian Disco is a series of short and comic autobiographical vignettes about life among the emigres in the explosive and extraordinary multi-cultural atmosphere of '90s Berlin.

It's an exotic, vodka-fuelled millennial Goodbye to Berlin.

The stories show a wonderful, innocent, deadpan economy of style reminiscent of the great humorists. [Several of his European editors make a comparison with current bestseller David Sedaris.] Kaminer manages to say a great deal without seeming to say much at all.

He speaks about the offbeat personal events of his own life but captures something universal about our disjointed times.
