Gadfly in Russia: A Story of Travel, History, People, and Places

'“A spry, readable literary travelogue that stretches from the ’60s to the present, chronicling eternal verities and changing moods alike.” —Kirkus Reviews   “Gadfly in Russia is fascinating. Much of it involves a 1967 grand tour in [Sillitoe’s] Peugeot estate accompanied by his Writers’ Union minder George Andjaparidze. Their journey—by parts touching, hilarious, compulsive, hair-raising—makes On the Road seem tame. Sillitoe is an unostentatious stylist and all the better for that; he blends candour with quiet elegance.” —Richard Bradford, The Spectator  '
