Description - I Was a Potato Oligarch by John Mole

The Soviet Union has disappeared along with a people's nationality, currency, jobs, salaries, pensions and politics. Oligarchs pillage the nation's wealth. It looks as if Russia might become a liberal democracy. It also looks as if it might plunge into chaos. These are fascinating times and John Mole wants to be part of this New Russia. But what can he do? An MBA, 15 years in international banking and a few novels, have left him with few useful skills. Inspiration strikes -British fast food!The potato business takes off and becomes a journey under the skin of the New Russia. Hired as a rabotnik, a worker, entitled to a week in a sanatorium every year, he tries to corner the market in business names and pizza cheese. He is taken for a corpse's son, a Red Square demonstrator and a vampire's victim
