ETA: A Mountain of Crumbs takes place in the 1960s, so it may not be what you are looking for.
Another book you might like is Stalin's daughter : the extraordinary and tumultuous life of Svetlana Alliluyeva by Rosemary Sullivan (I had mixed feelings about it). Svetlana defected to the U.S. in the 1960s, but returned to the Soviet Union from 1984-86.
And yet another book about Soviet culture you may like is Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking by Anya von Bremzen. According to the contents notes in my library's catalog: "With startling beauty and sardonic wit, Anya von Bremzen tells an intimate yet epic story of life in that vanished empire known as the USSR -- a place where every edible morsel was packed with emotional and political meaning." Each chapter covers a different decade, including the 1980s and 1990s.
ETA: ending quotation mark and touchstone.
(edit: Sorry, bridget-molly, read OP rather than thread title so my suggestion irrelevant. Leaving it here though as it's an interesting book.)
Of course, Limonov wrote as an emigré (as of 1974 at the age of 29, having grown up in Kharkov). What's more, he's not exactly a lovable character; he's been called a Russian Céline, apparently for many good reasons. So they may put some people off.
A shame I haven't gotten around to reading them myself.
Limonov's National Bolshevik Party of the 90s was pure punk - agitprop at its finest.
I also recommend Emmanuel Carrère's biography of Limonov. (Limonov, Éditions P.O.L./Éditions Gallimard, 2011)
