The Soviet Union was built on 20th-century magic called 'the planned economy', which was going to gush forth an abundance of good things that capitalism could never match. And just for a little while, in the late 1950s, the magic seemed to be working. This book is about that moment in history, and how it came, and how it went away.

A fictionalized historical look at life in the USSR from 1950 to 1970 from numerous perspectives. This is an intellectually satisfying novel, with an emphasis on Economics and central planning. Very worth reading if you are interested in the subject matter.
