Pirate, The (AKA God Loves Caviar)
An epic tale, spanning decades and continents, about Ioannis Varvakis, an Enlightenment-era rapscallion, who sided with the Russians in their 1768 war with the Turks, befriended Catherine the Great, built a fortune out of caviar – and then gave it all away to help his motherland fight the Ottoman empire.
