Part Three. In the Zone

Episode 9 (390-392)

Under a tall willow tree beside the canal, in a jeep, in the shade, sit Tchitcherine and his driver Dzabajev, a teenage Kazakh dope fiend with pimples and a permanently surly look, who combs his hair like the American crooner Frank Sinatra, and who is, at the moment, frowning at a slice of hashish and tellin Tchitcherine, "Well, you should have taken more than this, you know."
