What will books written about this time in history be like? If they are brilliantly erudite about complicity and politics, growing old and mortality, how we remember and forget history, and the quiet moments that stretch into our lives like cracks in glass, they’ll be like Belladonna. Drndic’s novel is thoughtful, funny, and profound. A must-read for fans of translation and anyone looking for a different perspective on our troubling times.

After living in the center of Moscow during the 2012 presidential election, I thought I knew just about everything there was to know about Putin's election and his initial rise to power. I was amazed after reading Masha's brilliant reporting of just how much was going on behind the scenes. This scathing book doesn't pull any punches and anyone who follows current events should give it a read.
