Alexander Boot was born and grew up in the Soviet Union. Unable to conform to the warped requirements of Soviet socialism he became 'ne-nash'. a non-person. At the age of 25 the KGB came to visit, telling him to leave the country or face exile to Siberia. In this book Alexander describes by means of vivid anecdotes what is was like to grow up in Moscow under the Communists.The picture of poverty, oppression, violence, drunkeness, promiscuity, corruption and hopelessness he paints of Soviet life is as nasty and brutish asanything described by Dickens or drawn by Hogarth.
