Dressed Up for a Riot: Misadventures in Putin's Moscow

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Michael Idov

Narrated By: Michael Idov

Date: February 2018

Duration: 8 hours 11 minutes

Summary:

In this crackling memoir, the journalist and novelist Michael Idov recounts the tempestuous years he spent living alongside-and closely observing-the media and cultural elite of Putin's Russia. After accepting a surprise offer to become the editor in chief of GQ Russia, Idov and his family arrive in a Moscow still seething from a dubious election and the mass anti-Putin rallies that erupted in response. Idov is fascinated by the political turmoil but nonetheless finds himself pulled in unlikely directions. He becomes a tabloid celebrity, acts in a Russian movie with Snoop Dogg, befriends the members of Pussy Riot, punches an anti-Semitic magazine editor on the steps of the Bolshoi Theatre, sells an autobiographical sitcom pilot that is later changed into an anti-American farce, and writes Russia's top-grossing domestic movie of 2015. Meanwhile, he becomes disillusioned with the splintering opposition to Putin and is briefly attracted to a kind of jaded Putinism lite-until Russia's invasion of Ukraine thoroughly changes his mind.
