Summary (From the publisher):

Vladimir Makanin, the most acclaimed writer of post-Soviet Russia, examines the fates of ordinary people of the future--or is it the present?--in these two brilliant novellas. These characters are caught in surreal situations which test their ability to retain their humanity. Makanin's world is one of deliberate ambiguity, where nothing, not even the story itself, is at it seems, and haunting imagery is used to appeal directly to a reader's subconscious. In Escape Hatch a man switches back and forth between two worlds, one above-ground, where social order has broken down and chaos reigns, the other underground, where art and beauty survive, but at a terrible price. In The Long Road Ahead a young engineer is sent to a secret base to solve a technical problem, and encounters a world he never suspected existed.
