Ludmila's Broken English charts the unlikely meeting between East and West that follows Ludmila Derev's appearance on a Russian brides website. Determined to save her family from starvation, Ludmila's journey into the world and womanhood is an odyssey of sour wit and even sourer vodka. Thousands of miles to the west, the Heath twins, Blair and Bunny, are separated after 33 years conjoined at the abdomen. Released for the first time from an institution, they are suddenly plunged into a round-the-clock world churning with opportunity. A wild and raucous picaresque dripping with the flavours of British bacon and nasty Russian vodka.

Review quote

"With a mix of offbeat composition and intoxicating insight, Pierre's dystopian work is in a genus all its own."
