Ilf and Petrov's American Road Trip
The 1935 Travelogue of Two Soviet WritersBook - 2007
From Ilf and Petrov's American Road Trip :
"The word 'America' has well-developed grandiose associations for a Soviet person, for whom it refers to a country of skyscrapers, where day and night one hears the unceasing thunder of surface and underground trains, the hellish roar of automobile horns, and the continuous despairing screams of stockbrokers rushing through the skyscrapers waving their ever-falling shares. We want to change that image."
