The Twelve Chairs is one of the most popular and prolific satirical novels written by Odessa-based Ilya Ilf and Yevgeny Petrov. Set in Soviet Russia, the story starts with a deathbed confession about substantial family treasures hidden from the Bolsheviks in one of the twelve chairs. A team of treasure hunters is quickly formed. Smooth operator Ostap Bender and Kisa, the Pussycat, set off to track down the chairs. They are not alone in their quest.
Ilya Ilf and Evgeny Petrov came to the USA to drive cross-country and back on a 10-week trip, recording images of American life through the lens of a Leica camera and humorous impressions of America in their notebooks. When they returned home, they published their work in Russia's leading cultural magazines and later in their book. Filled with humorous observations and travel stories, this audiobook lets you experience this wonderful American road trip for yourself.
