The Russian humor of the 21st century is quite different from the middle of the 20th Gone are the bread lines, the Communist party and one room dwellings in a communal house No one is sent to the Gulag for making a joke Even for jokes about Putin, even when they compare him to a Czar So the Russian people s humor adapts It has become philosophical on the one handThe Russian humor of the 21st century is quite different from the middle of the 20th Gone are the bread lines, the Communist party and one room dwellings in a communal house No one is sent to the Gulag for making a joke Even for jokes about Putin, even when they compare him to a Czar So the Russian people s humor adapts It has become philosophical on the one hand, or moved into the family and business arenas on the other The jokers can be rich, but are mostly poor They can be of an average intelligence, but are mostly wise They may have enemies, but rise above the hatred They are funnier than ever, but now their humor reflects the multinational character of Russian speakers who are spread all over the world Some of the jokes are one liners, some a bit longer, but none will tax the reader s attention span.

This is a great little book of quick humor. It's got a great micro fiction touch at getting to the heart of a short funny story. It's over all too quick, but has some great stuff.

This is a great way to be introduced to Russian humour if you are a stranger to it. The book starts off with a few jabs at Putin and then develops into the more traditional wisecracks and aphorisms - some funny, some deep and meaningful. Jokes are the hardest thing to translate (speaking from experience!) and Mark did an excellent job of it.
