At the start of the story, he has just been fired from his job as foreman of a telephone cable-laying crew for drawing charts of the amount of alcohol he and his colleagues were consuming over time. These graphs showed a clear correlation with personal characters. For example, for a Komsomol member, the graph is like the Kremlin Wall, that of a "shagged-out old creep" is like "a breeze on the river Kama", and Venya's chart simply shows his inability to draw a straight line because of the amount he has drunk. Venichka spends the last of his money on liquor and food for the journey. While on the train, he engages in lengthy monologues about history, philosophy and politics. He also befriends many of his fellow travellers and discusses life in the Soviet Union with them over multiple bottles of alcohol. Eventually Venichka oversleeps his station and wakes up on the train headed back for Moscow. Still drunk, half-conscious and tormented by fantastic visions, he wanders aimlessly the night city streets, happens upon a gang of thugs, and is promptly chased and murdered by them. © V.

With the Kama Sutra Under My Arm: An Indian Jou...
9,95 € *

Having been left for another, Trisha decides that the best way to nurse her broken heart is to escape to India, armed with a copy of the Kama Sutra with its promise to teach her how to seduce a new lover, train a hawk (to carry love letters, of course!), furnish a house seductively, and seduce other women's husbands (well, maybe not that one). At the last minute, Trisha is joined by her long-lost backpacking companion, Sally.Navigating the chaotic streets of India in death-defying rickshaws, and traversing the country on overcrowded trains and buses driven by speed freaks, Trisha and Sally find themselves almost marooned in the Thar Desert after an unfortunate dog incident, almost camel-napped in Rajasthan, pursued by a charging bull at Jaisalmer, attacked in no uncertain terms by an amorous monkey in Delhi, and stranded in a flooded hotel room in sodden underwear in the middle of the night at Mount Abu. And those were the good days! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jane Clifton. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/boli/000870/bk_boli_000870_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
