The Broken Boots Guide to Astlavonia

Debt-ridden and divorced, Mark King wins a travel writing competition with a bogus article and is sent to Astlavonia, a former soviet state, to write its first ever guidebook. He stays with Augustus, a Fagin-like professor, who warns that all disputes are settled with a knife. This would be fine if Mark hadn’t fallen in love with the daughter of the chief of police, a survivor of the Gulag and hater of ‘occupying’ foreigners. ‘This inventive and enjoyable romp set in a fictional ex-soviet republic has its fair share of effective and amusing moments, engaging and well realized characters, and bizarre and intriguing situations.’ Colin Murray. ‘Original and insightful,’ James Pryor.
