Babylon

by Victor Pelevin

I found this a bit weird! We go from political revolution, through drugs, pepsi cola, the free market economy and poetry. It's cruel, very funny and rather literary, but most of all it reminds me of the Pet Shop Boys pop group.

These children lounged on the seashore in the summer, gazing endlessly at a cloudless blue horizon, they drank warm Pepsi-Cola decanted into glass bottles in the city of Novorossiisk and dreamed that some day the distant forbidden world on the far side of the sea would be part of their own lives.
Translated by Andrew Bromfield
