Read full description of the books Ludmila's Broken English:On a Tuesday in May, in terror-struck London, Blair and Bunny Heath become the first adult conjoined twins ever successfully separated. Later that year, in the war-torn Caucasus, Ludmila Derev accidentally kills her grandfather. By December, Ludmila and the twins find themselves trudging together through a snow field, staring down the barrel of a rebel's gun.
Ludmila has set out on a journey west to save her family from starvation and marauding Gnez troops. The Heath twins have been released from a newly privatized institution rumored to have been founded for an illegitimate royal baby. They are plunged into a round-the-clock world churning with opportunity and rowdy with the chatter of freedom, self-empowerment, and sex. Dangerous cocktails and a Russian brides Web site throw these unforgettable characters together with explosive results.
Conjuring a deliciously overwrought assembly of characters and settings in prose that is baroque, vibrant, and vicious, DBC Pierre's second novel confirms his place in the ranks of today's most audacious and acclaimed authors.
