Victor Pelevin, very interesting contemporary Russian novelist who The New Yorker named one of the Best European Writers Under 35.
Born in Moscow in 1962, Pelevin is best known in the West for his short satirical novel, ''Omon Ra,'' which is based on the conceit that the Soviet Union's spectacular success in using robotic spacecraft early in the space age was a fraud.
I recommend this book to all !!!
