Russian Hide & Seek - Kingsley Amis

Hutchinson, 1980, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ. Top edges of text block lightly spotted.

From the cover: “England fifty years after its takeover by the Soviet Union is the setting for Kingsley Amis’s savage but brilliant new tragic-comedy. In this land where official Rolls-Royces move among horse-drawn carts and where a bottle of whisky might cost £ 10,000, the Russians have abandoned all allegiance to Marxism and adopted a crude and decadent form of the ways of Tsarist Russia. For the natives, life is grey, but tolerable. For their Russian rulers, frantically pursuing pleasure, it is joyless and loveless.”
