Summary (From the publisher):

This hilarious novel following the continuing adventures of Ivan Chonkin, a simple peasant who has been arrested as a traitor after spending World War II happily tending a garden. In this sequel to The Extraordinary Life and Adventures of Private Ivan Chonkin, Vladimir Voinovich ridicules everything sacred to the Soviet Union—the army, the justice system, the press, and Stalin himself—in a refreshing combination of dissident conscience and universal humor.
