When Anatoly Pavlovich Sukhanov was a young man, he was an avant-garde Soviet artist, but after marrying the daughter of another painter, Sukhanov becomes an art critic and apparatchik, in the debut novel by Russian-born Olga Grushin called The Dream Life of Sukhanov. It was a dream life -- until the Soviet system began to wither and die, and now Sukhanov has to face what kind of life he has made.
