He "depicts the literary world of the 1920s so that it appears he was the most important person on the scene" and portrays everyone else in an unflattering, and often mendacious, light. There's an argument to be made that it was a deliberate provocation, an attempt to get people to think in less clichéd ways about the period (compare Sinyavsky's Strolls with Pushkin, which also enraged people), but it's probably not the first place to go for more Kataev. I'd suggest trying A White Sail Gleams, The Embezzlers or Time, Forward!.
