A raucous and brilliantly insane road trip of epic proportions, from the Booker Prize-winning author of Vernon God Little.

DBC Pierre's second novel charts the unlikely meeting between East and West that follows Ludmila Derev's appearance on a Russian Brides website. Determined to save her family from starvation in the face of marauding troops, Ludmila's journey into the world and womanhood is an odyssey of sour wit, even sourer vodka, and a Soviet tractor possibly running on goat's piss.

Meanwhile, thousands of miles to the West, the Heath twins are separated after 33 years conjoined at the abdomen. Released for the first time into the community, they are suddenly plunged into a round-the-clock world churning with opportunity, rowdy with the chatter of freedom, democracy, self-empowerment and sex.

A wild picaresque dripping with flavours of British bacon and nasty Russian vodka, Ludmila's Broken English is a tale of tangoing twins on a journey into the unknown.

Review:

Front page review: As impossible to predict as it is to put down....It's as if when you open the covers Pierre's cartoonish figures bubble up to act out dramas in some alternate dimension.

Pierre's sensuous, often vitriolic language suits a story that, while not for the fainthearted, is viciously funny and sad.

Pierre's prose is so exuberant it nearly bounces off the page....Proves Pierre is definitely more than a one-hit wonder.
