Cheers Comrade Lenin
by Christopher Chapman
Take a typical farming community, set deep in the heart of a Ukraine that time has forgotten and try to impose Communism. Set somewhere in the mid 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, the book follows an irreverent family’s battle of wits with the authorities, throughout a typical summer. Throw in a debauched actress, a mad bee keeper and a self-styled war hero and see what happens.
