Russia has fascinated outsiders for centuries, and according to Alicia Chudo (the pen name of Gary Saul Morson), it is high time this borscht stopped. Examining one thousand years worth of unreadable writers, revolutionaries who can't hit the broad side of a tsar, and Soviets who like their vodka and love their tractors, Chudo takes no prisoners in her magnum opus of misanthropy. And Quiet Flows the Vodka promises to be the final word on the dreary first two millennia of Russian literature, history, and culture.
