Strange as it may seem, the gray, oppressive USSR was founded on a fairy tale. It was built on the 20th-century magic called "the planned economy," which was going to gush forth an abundance of good things that the lands of capitalism could never match. And just for a little while, in the heady years of the late 1950s, the magic seemed to be working. Red Plenty is about that moment in history, and how it came, and how it went away. Red Plenty is history, it's fiction, it's as ambitious as Sputnik, and as uncompromising as an Aeroflot flight attendant.

It's a book for believers who are fed up with being patronised, for nonbelievers curious about faith in the 21st century, and for anyone who feels there is something indefinably anti-imaginative and intolerant about the way the atheist case is currently being made.
