Description  more details

"A searing, audacious, and darkly comic novel from a new literary voice of international importance, 'Snow White and Russian Red' is a fresh and surprising portrait of marginalized, fatalistic post-Communist youth. It is the story of Andrzej 'Nails' Robakoski and his unraveling after his girlfriend Magda dumps him. A tracksuited slacker, Nails spends most of his time doing little more than searching for his next girl, next line of speed, next proof for his conspiracy theories about the Polish economy. A xenophobic campaign against the proliferating Russian black market escalates, culminating in No Russkies Day-or is that just in Nails's fevered mind? By turns poetic, hilarious, disturbing, and dirty, 'Snow White and Russian Red' is a powerful portrait of love, hopelessness, and political burnout in today's Eastern Europe."
Black Cat, New York 2005, 294 pages (soft cover)
