Moscow, Armada-press, 2001, 480 pp. ISBN:5-309-00212-X 

“I read your book from cover to cover in one sitting.  It is a wonderful book about self and our time.  It seemed as if I had been talking with a close friend..." (Reflections)

The author was planning to write about Bonelli’s Eagle, 
but it turned out about Love, Oak Bark Decoction, 
Communism, Epilasia mirabilis, UFO, Gripsack, War in 
Afghanistan, Helicopters in Canada, Coconuts in India, 
Battery for Kamikaze, Edimnovo, Balashiha, Tarusa, 
“Old” Russians, AB Station, Wolf Snake, Life and 
Death, Parts of the Whole, about Kings and Cabbage…
It’s not the author’s fault.  It just so happened…
S. Polozov

P.S. This text (narrative nonfiction) has been written in 
accordance to tradition of an ancient Eastern “Frame 
Novel": core plot – a “Frame” (numbered parts about 
the search for the illusive eagle in 1982-1986 in 
Turkmenistan) is framing the "Picture" that is the book 
(chapters with their individual titles, covering events of 
1960-2000 in Russia, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, 
India, and Canada).
