Launched with the summer '04 award-winning best seller Brooklyn Noir, Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies. Each book is comprised of all-new stories, each one set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book.
The more you watch Moscow, the more it looks like a huge chameleon that keeps changing its face--and it isn't always pretty. Following Akashic's international success with London Noir, Delhi Noir, Paris Noir, and others, the Noir Series explores this fabled and troubled city's darkest recesses.
FROM THE INTRODUCTION:
The deeper we delved into Moscow's soul-chilling debris, the more vividly it arose before us in all its bleak and mystical despair. Despite its stunning outward luster, Moscow is above all a city of broken dreams and unrealized utopias, and all manner of scum oozes through the gap between dream and reality . . . Moscow Noiris an attempt to turn the tourist Moscow of gingerbread and woodcuts, of glitz and big money, inside out; an attempt to show its fetid womb and make sense of the desolation that reigns there.
