‘[A] supremely uplifting novel … It’s elegant, witty and delightful – much like the Count himself.’ Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year

‘Charming … shows that not all books about Russian aristocrats have to be full of doom and nihilism’ The Times, Books of the Year

On 21 June 1922, Count Alexander Rostov – recipient of the Order of Saint Andrew, member of the Jockey Club, Master of the Hunt – is escorted out of the Kremlin, across Red Square and through the elegant revolving doors of the Hotel Metropol.

Deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the Count has been sentenced to house arrest indefinitely. But instead of his usual suite, he must now live in an attic room while Russia undergoes decades of tumultuous upheaval.

Can a life without luxury be the richest of all?

  • I Am Zlatan Ibrahimovic Paperback – 5 September 2013 by Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Author)

    I AM ZLATAN – the explosive, critically-acclaimed memoir of Manchester United star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, one of the world’s most gifted and controversial footballers

    ‘Why be a Fiat when you can be a Ferrari?’

    Welcome to planet Zlatan. This is the story of how a Swedish immigrant rose from poverty to become a football genius.

    In his own inimitable style, Zlatan recalls every struggle, every goal, and every training ground bust-up on his journey to dominate the world’s top clubs, including Barcelona, PSG and now Manchester United.

    Full of wicked one-liners and amazing stories, Zlatan lifts the lid on some of the biggest names in football, including Guardiola, Messi and his new manager, Jose Mourinho.

    Moving, funny and totally frank, I am Zlatan is unlike any autobiography you have ever read.

    ‘Wonderful – nothing less than a revelation. Ibrahimovic is the definitive modern sporting icon’ – Matthew Syed

    ‘The best sportsman’s memoir since Andre Agassi… not just a bad boy’s romp but the rise of a boy from the ghetto to the top of his profession and captain of his country. He is candid, funny and yes, wonderfully nuts’ – The Times

    ‘There’s never a dull moment on Planet Zlatan. This is a snarling, fizzing, unrepentant firecracker of a book; if footballers’ memoirs bore you, make an exception for this one’ – Independent
