One Hot Summer in St.Petersburg Summary


One Hot Summer in St.Petersburg by Duncan Fallowell

The summer of 1992 in St Petersburg was one of the hottest for years. Duncan Fallowell was there to write a novel, but in the event he wrote hardly a word. From the moment of his arrival he was sucked into the world of clubs, bars and restaurants, swept away by its extraordinary architecture, embroiled in a thousand different conversations. He also fell in love, with Dima, a seventeen-year-old navel cadet. This is Fallowell's account of that summer, a book of enormous verve, joie de vivre - and sadness.
