"A riveting portrait of the new Russia." (Tina Brown). "Pomerantsev is one of the most brilliant observers of Putin's Russia...an electrifying, terrifying book." (Anne Applebaum). "Unflinching, tragic and profound." (AD Miller, author of SNOWDROPS). A journey into the glittering, surreal heart of 21st century Russia: into the lives of Hells Angels convinced they are messiahs, professional killers with the souls of artists, bohemian theatre directors turned Kremlin puppet-masters, supermodel sects, post-modern dictators and oligarch revolutionaries. This is a world erupting with new money and new power, changing so fast it breaks all sense of reality, where life is seen as a whirling, glamorous masquerade where identities can be switched and all values are changeable. It is home to a new form of authoritarianism, far subtler than 20th century strains, and which is rapidly expanding to challenge the global order. An extraordinary book - one which is as powerful and entertaining as it is troubling - Nothing is True and Everything is Possible offers a wild ride into this political and ethical vacuum.

· "A fizzingly impressionistic account of the new Russian elites... irresistible." --Francis Wheen, Mail on Sunday
· "This book is one of the finest accounts we have of the grotesque nihilism of [Putin's] system... required reading for anyone seeking to understand Putin's Russia." --Oliver Bullough, The Observer
