Words Will Break Cement: The Passion of Pussy Riot by Masha Gessen (2014)
I'm sure that I wasn't supposed to feel this way, but I didn't like the three members of Pussy Riot at all. They seem like grandstanding brats. I didn't exactly sympathize with the Putin government - it just seemed like everyone was an anti-hero. I didn't finish this book though. Maybe they come out better at the end. But I became so annoyed with them I stopped reading and went on to something else. Masha Gessen is far more interesting being interviewed than her writing.
