The Day of the Oprichnik, by Vladimir Sorokin. In New Russia, 2028, when futuristic technology and the draconian codes of Ivan the Terrible are in perfect synergy, the oprichnik Komiaga is one of the czar's most trusted courtiers-and one of the country's most feared men. Exploding with invention and dark humor, The Day of the Oprichnik is at once a richly imagined vision of the future and a razor-sharp diagnosis of a country in crisis.
