THE TASTE OF DREAMS: An Obsession with Russia and Caviar

260px-Caviar_spoons

The Taste of Dreams tells the story of modern Russia through the trade in illegal caviar that grew up after the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991.

It’s both a travelogue and a memoir of the friends I made while living in Russia and travelling in the south, near the Caspian Sea, where caviar comes from.

It’s also a meditation on the excitements — and the dangers — of living in a place where the rules people once lived by have all but broken down. Finally, it’s a coming-of-age story about growing up and learning to go home.

Take a look at some of the reviews (they were good!) or find out more about the mysterious Caspian Sea by looking at an antique map, or sample a free chapter,.Na zdoroviye.
