Esquire in September

The main article of the September issue of Esquire looks at how the way of life has changed for Russian men from the 1950s to the present day. Yuri Gagarin, Vladimir Vysotsky, Pavel Durov, the 600th Mercedes, the “Devyatka," the August coup and parties in the “Diaghilev" – as well as other things, people, and events that the magazine would have written about if it were published all those years.

Also, businessman Petr Aven talks with Esquire Editor-in-Chief Sergei Minaev about why the dreams of the 1990s for a better future were not destined to come true.

Readers will also find the rules of life according to journalist Leonid Parfyonov; Alexander Rappoport, Boris Zarkov, and Moscow’s other top restaurateurs; actress Lyubov Aksyonova and a song by Jefferson Airplane; and an unwinnable game from the life of a Russian media manager.
