(From the publisher):
Set during the New Economic Policy (NEP), THE GOLDEN CALF chronicles the adventures of con man Ostap Bender (a.k.a., the "Grand Strategist") and his merry band of mischief-makers on a raucously hilarious jaunt across the "wild west" of the early Soviet Union. Their mark: Alexander Koreiko, another shady figure who exploited the corruption and chaos of the NEP to become an "underground millionaire." Once Bender hears of Koreiko, the chase is on. It's time to con the con man and get the rubles necessary to escape to the beaches and white pants of Rio de Janeiro ...
