Night of the New Russian

13 pages10 minutes


The Priapin's marriage is beginning to crack. Sergey, a wealthy media mogul and possible Parliamentary candidate, and Tanya, a high-flying lawyer, barely talk, and when they do, it's to exchange barbed comments about each other's pasts. Caught in the middle, their sons Misha and Sasha, dream of a life in the USA, far away from the chaos and stress of Yeltsin's Russia, but Sergey's ambitions and Tanya's career threaten the stability of the family itself.
Third short story in a series by David Brining exploring life in post-Communist Russia.
