The Last Man in Russia : And the Struggle to Save a Dying Nation Paperback
"Wonderful...These are the chronicles of a writer who truly knows Russia". (New York Times). Award-winning writer Oliver Bullough travels the country from crowded Moscow train to empty windswept village, following in the footsteps of one extraordinary man, the dissident Orthodox priest Father Dmitry.
His moving, terrifying story is the story of a nation: famine, war, the frozen wastes of the Gulag, the collapse of communism and now, a people seeking oblivion.
Bullough shows that in a country so willing to crush its citizens, there is also courage, resilience and flickering glimmers of hope.
