“It felt like he’d entered another time.”
“As if to prove the point, a large statue of Lenin suddenly loomed up at a junction, hand outstretched towards another gigantic, ruler- straight avenue.”

A bit about the author of ‘Russia, the Man and Jonathan David’ Saul Pope lives in High Wycombe. This is his first work of fiction, though he is a contributor to When Saturday Comes and has had poetry published. As a Russian graduate, the blame for any poor transliteration or errors with the genitive case lies squarely with him.
