In the dying days of the Soviet empire, a Russian scientist decides to save the natives of Kamchatka from alcohol-related extinction by replacing vodka with a psychedelic mushroom. This experiment was quickly terminated by the Party. In Project Nirvana, Pyotr Patrushev extrapolates these true events into a plot that is now more relevant than ever.
A kidnapped Indian guru becoming a chess wizard, sexy Russian spy Anna seducing American security expert Richard Snowden, state-controlled drugs enhancing productivity when used with meditation... this and much more provide a practical recipe for reaching world peace while simultaneously ending the futile war on drugs... a satire with cleverly concealed thought memes that will guide social and drug reform world-wide for years to come.
"A wildly imaginative book... amazing tales..."
- Robyn Williams (ABC Radio)
"Patrushev's novel brings together the visions of Orwell and Huxley."
- Michael McGirr (The Sydney Morning Herald)
He is the author of 4 books: Project Nirvana, Sentenced to Death, a memoir about his escape from Russia to Turkey (published in Russia in 2005), The Transcendent Ape (forthcoming from Leaf Garden Press), and Buddha's Balalaika (collected writings 1964-2014).
