Taste of Dreams: An Obsession with Russia and Caviar
Vanora Bennett (au)
Caviar meant Russia to Vanora Bennett, and she imagined Russia as a place of profound and seductive melancholia. She went to Russia in search of real caviar. Caviar was the symbol of success in Russia: basinfulls of it was stolen, smuggled, and grabbed from the sea and sold on the sly. But behind the greed powering this new capitalism and egging gangster governments on to asset-strip the nation lurked something deeply destructive. Bennett followed the spirit of Russian-style craziness south to the home of the sturgeon, the Caspian Sea, with its coups, kidnappings and smugglers. “A beautifully written tale of adventure and amazements.” “At its heart is a lament for one of the world’s great endangered species.” Maps.
