Alexander "Sasha" Korbach, a singer/composer/playwright adored by the counterculture in Moscow and reviled by the Communist powers-that-were, comes to the United States to start a new life, and to search for a new style of artistic expression. Nobody is at the airport to meet him. Oh, well. Left to his own footloose devices, he drunkenly discovers that he's a distant cousin of another Alexander Korbach, an American who owns a huge retail business and an elegant flagship store in New York. But before he can, um, capitalize on this connection he has to work as a garage attendant in Santa Monica, deal with his Russian ex-wife and their two children, now living in Haiti, face down the KGB, have sex with a KGB agent, drink a goodly portion of vodka now and again (and again), fall in love, remarry, and discover ex post facto that his new wife is not only an archaologist but an astronaut, etc. With his inimitable hilarious/melancholy sensibility, Vasily Aksyonov draws a sharp portrait of a flawed but resilient hero who wanders through his new homeland in search of happiness and a rational life. This is a story about displacement and relocation, despair and redemption, Communism and Capitalism, love and sex, art and commerce. (Hollywood knocks on Sasha's door. Will it still be there when he opens it?) And vodka. The breathtaking narrative leaps from one locale and story and theme to another are accomplished with consummate grace and self-deprecating irony. The whole book adds up to a wondrously sustained comic riff about the way this distinguished novelist views the way we live now.
