The true story of Colin Thubron's journey through the Soviet Union during the Breshnev era. He visited various parts of the country, including St. Petersburg, the Baltic States, Georgia and Armenia. He describes dealings with suspicious bureaucrats who didn't know what to make of a westerner travelling alone by car, meetings with dissenters, visits to museums and famous places, and the terror of being under surveillance by the KGB, all with good humour and graceful prose.
