Wladimir Kaminer


Wladimir Kaminer is the author of Russian Disco.

Born in Moscow, Wladimir Kaminer emigrated to Berlin in the early 90s when he was 22. Russian Disco is a series of short and comic autobiographical vignettes about life among the migrants in the explosive and extraordinary multicultural atmosphere of 90s Berlin.

The stories show a wonderful, innocent, deadpan economy of style reminiscent of the great humorists. Kaminer speaks about the offbeat personal events of his own life but captures something universal about our disjointed times.
