Children of Brezhnev is a story of love and betrayal set against the backdrop of the economic and spiritual decline of the Soviet Union with its underlying ethnic tensions, the Afghan war and the slow but steady criminalization of the country. The novel culminates in the violent transition to a free market leading to a new Russia where the higher echelons of society and the underworld finally merge.
