Understanding Russia -- and what drives its complicated, dynamic people -- has confounded historians and world leaders for centuries. But in a new novel, author Josh Weil captures those complexities and sets them in a futuristic Russian society living under a glass dome. It's in this vast greenhouse bathed in perpetual sunlight that Weil's main characters live, love and struggle to come to terms with a new Russia that, in some respects, bears a striking resemblance to the present day. Kojo explores the world under the "The Great Glass Sea."
