Ludmila's Broken English by D. B. C. Pierre

Book Description

DBC Pierre's second novel charts the unlikely meeting between East and West that follows Ludmila Derev's appearance on a Russian brides website. Determined to save her family from starvation in the face of marauding Gnez troops, Ludmila's journey into the world and womanhood is an odyssey of sour wit, even sourer vodka, and a Soviet tractor probably running on goat's piss. Thousands of miles to the West, the Heath twins are separated after 33 years conjoined at the abdomen. Released for the first time from an institution rumoured to have been founded for an illegitimate child of Charles II, they are suddenly plunged into a round-the-clock world churning with opportunity, rowdy with the chatter of freedom, democracy, self-empowerment and sex. A wild and raucous picaresque dripping with flavours of British bacon and nasty Russian vodka, Ludmila's "Broken English" is a tale of tango-ing twins on a journey into the unknown. A ride so outrageously improbable it just may happen, DBC Pierre's second novel confirms his place in the ranks of today's most original storytellers.

Books By Author D. B. C. Pierre

Release the Bats by D. B. C. Pierre Release the Bats, Paperback (July 2016)

When the author burst onto the scene in 2003, he arrived with no particular literary education. Part biography, part reflection and part practical guide, this book explores the mysteries of why and how we tell stories, and the craft of writing fiction. It also reveals everything that the author learned the hard way.

Breakfast with the Borgias by D. B. C. Pierre Breakfast with the Borgias, Paperback (January 2015)

The setting: a faded, lonely guesthouse on the Essex coast. Outside, it's dark, and very foggy. Inside there's no phone or internet reception, no connection with the outside world. Enter Ariel Panek, a promising young academic en route from the USA to an important convention in Amsterdam.

Petit Mal by D. B. C. Pierre Petit Mal, Hardback (November 2013)

Offers a collection of short fictions, philosophical vignettes and aphoristic interludes. Drawing on memoir and a life lived in pursuit of sensation, but always ignited by the flame of fiction, this book takes us further into the imagination of one of the most radically original prose stylists of the past decade.

Notes from Underground by D. B. C. Pierre Notes from Underground, Paperback (October 2012)

A ground-breaking new translation of Dostoyevsky's most radical work of fiction With an introduction by DBC Pierre
