This work of nonfiction reads like a compelling novel where Masha follows the lives of young people just old enough to remember the fall of the USSR. Their stories intertwine with those of their parents and grandparents showing the generational disconnect and the obstacles it presents. Through interviews and impressive research Masha shares the truth behind the iron curtain and what happened after it was rent in two.

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.
