Russia has fascinated outsiders for centuries, and according to Alicia Chudo, it is high time this borscht stopped. In this hilarious send up of Russian literature and history, Chudo takes no prisoners as she examines Russia's great tradition of unreadable geniuses, revolutionaries who can't hit the broad side of a tsar, and Soviets who like their vodka but love their tractors. Written in the tradition of "1066"" and All That," "The Pooh Perplex," and "The Classics Redefined," "And Quiet Flows the Vodka" will, with any luck, be the final word on the ghastly first two millennia of Russian literature, history, and culture.
