Vadim's having a tough time adjusting to capitalism. The grey, slushy Latvia he knows has not been the same since Euro-bypass surgery revived its economy. Everywhere he looks, designer-clad clones are hanging out in chic bars and driving expensive cars. His only escape is into the virtual world of the super-sophisticated computer game 'Headcrusher' where he can blast people away to his heart's content. Until, that is, he takes a blunt implement to his boss's real head and embarks on a killing spree that leads him to the limits of reality...Fast, furious and wicked fun, this is Russia's Fight Club and American Psycho rolled into one. Its high-octane combination of spoof and satire, humour and violence make it the most exciting novel to come out of the ex-USSR in a very long time.

Author Biography - Alexander Garros

Born in 1975, Alexander Garros and Aleksei Evdokimov both work as journalists in Riga, Latvia. Friends since school, they decided to write a novel together. The result was Headcrusher, which went on to win the prestigious Russian Literary National Bestseller Prize in 2003.
