Red Plenty

So there was a moment in the middle of the 20th century when it looked like Communism was really going to work: The USSR's planned economy was skyrocketing, the nation was modernizing, and the standard of living for millions of people had been brought into the twentieth century. This was a heady time, apparently, and Spufford spins out a not-quite-historical-novel full of stories of what it would have been like to live through that moment.
