STRANGE TELESCOPES  UK Edition: Faber US Edition: Overlook

Join fearless and possibly extremely foolhardy travel writer Daniel Kalder
on a year long quest thousands of miles across Russia in search of
some of the most bizarre peoples and places on earth. Will he find the
mythical lost city of tramps in the sewers of Moscow or hunt down
demons and exorcists in the Ukraine? What happens when he meets the
messiah (and one-time traffic cop) whose thousands of followers await
the apocalypse in Siberia? And what is the extraordinary secret he
discovers in the only wooden skyscraper on the planet? Here is the
fascinating story of a journey that turned out to be far more inspiring,
moving and downright strange than Kalder could ever have imagined.

Selected as one of the 10 best books of 2009 by The National Post.
