In Dressed Up for a Riot, Idov writes openly, sensitively, and stingingly about life in Moscow and his place in a media apparatus that sometimes undermined but more often bolstered a state system defined by cynicism, corruption, and the fanning of fake news. With humor and intelligence, he offers a close-up glimpse of what a declining world power can become.

The writer talks his years working as editor of Russia's GQ during the year's of Moscow street protests which sputtered out with the final hope for change coming through a band called pussy riot that protested in songs against Putin's Russia.

Colorfully written, though it stalls out here and there. It is interesting of how the political situation is in Moscow and how the elections are rigged.
