Mr. Sorokin's latest work is named after Ivan the Terrible's 16th-century KGB. These 21st-century oprichniki, however, drive around in their Chinese-made Mercedes and use computers, but still behave like feudal lords. The novel is set in 2028, when all that counts are oil, gas and an unswerving loyalty to a tyrant and his henchmen. A satire of today's Russia, where three quarters of the senior politicians and bureaucrats have a background in the security services just like ex-KGB colonel Vladimir Putin.
