    I greatly enjoyed this anthology of travely and adventures of the fictional writer Henry Bech (Upton's alter ego) in a state-sponsored trip in the Soviet Union.

Another thing which makes this read intresting is how the narration jumps from the notes the author takes during thRich in Russia is the story of Henry Bech (supposedly Upton's alter ego) during a state-sponsored travel to the Soviet Union.

    The first story in this büechli, the title story, was fantastic (as was the cantankerous introduction by the man about whom the fictionalized portrait was written).

    I only even sort-of liked the parts that were similar to "Naked Lunch". Won't read again. Not badly written- just not my thing.
