His novellas are unique explorations of the world beyond the Iron Curtain, the imagined paradises and grand cliches in the emigres dreams of freedom.These stories transport readers into the psyche of one such emigre who is not obliged to leave his native Russia but nonetheless wanders onto new paths previously untrod under the cloud of communism and finds himself in one weird situation after another. While the reasons for the narrators displacement in the post-communist world are a subject of sober discourse, he is a playful, sardonic character, a sharp observer of both himself and those around him.
