Borders Up!

Borders Up! by Vitali Vitaliev

by Vitali Vitaliev

One would assume that with the collapse of Communism, East Europeans would drink much less than before: a democratic society should surely be able to provide many more means of escape than alcohol. The reality, however, is very different.

Borders Up! is Vitali Vitaliev’s sharp and sardonic travelogue, an attempt to find out why drinking in post-Communist Eastern Europe has increased dramatically since the fall of the Berlin Wall.

It is both informative and very, very funny.
