Putin wants to pass a new censorship law in Russia and he’s using my books as a justification to do so.
Well, uh, add that to the trophy case…
So, what did it? The profanity? No. My Russian publisher chose to leave the F-word out of both translated titles. Maybe the lewd humor? Maybe calling my readers “fuckface” and comparing them to a dog shitting on the carpet doesn’t go over well out east? Nope. Not that, either.
The censorship law was proposed because I dared to write frankly about the Soviet atrocities committed during and after World War II.
