Summary
After returning to Russia to attend his father's funeral, 30-year-old Misha is subsequently denied a visa when he attempts to re-enter the United States. What follows is a series of misadventures through the Eastern Bloc in which Misha runs afoul of crooked politicians, businessmen, and bureaucracies all seemingly determined to keep him from his new home country
Summary
Misha Vainburg is a Russian expatriate who inherited a post-Soviet fortune before coming to America. Having lived in the U.S. for twelve years, Vainburg is apprehensive about returning to his native country to attend his father's funeral. His apprehension turns out to be well-founded when he is denied a visa to return to the United States. Absurdistan reads like a pleading letter to the Russian government, with Misha explaining his desperation to return to America
