Críticas:

"Cohen's Russia is soaked in cigarette smoke, vodka, and sex for hire. She reveals the underside of Russian life, both in its day-to-day decay and the more sensational world of crime and corruption." Tzivia Gover, author of "Mindful Moments for Stressful Days"" "Jennifer Cohen writes fearlessly about love, betrayal, and self-discovery in the fresh setting of an expat in post-communist Russia. Anyone who has fallen for the wrong person, or sought adventure, will be captivated by this tale of a young woman learning to become herself amid the swirls and intrigues of Moscow and St. Petersburg." Michele Mitchell, author of "The Latest Bombshell"" "Her story is riveting. The love story is wistful, funny, and wise, woven into a moment in history, also seen with a candid and revealing eye. This is an original-a fresh voice, a great read, a memorable coming of age story." Carol Gilligan, author of "In a Different Voice" and "The Birth of Pleasure"" [A] fascinatingly moving memoir...told against a backdrop of incredible political upheaval and peppered with a cast of characters as extraordinary as those in the court of Versailles. As Cohen finds out more about Russia, she begins to find out more about herself and Kevin, and it s not very pretty.... At the end of this remarkable book, she s ready and able to go home. Sex, power, and politics almost always share the same bed. And whether coexisting in a glittering 17th-century palace or the gritty modern streets of Moscow, they make for reading pleasures as addictive as chocolate. Caroline Leavitt, "The Boston Globe"" "Business meets sex meets pleasure meets danger meets their mutual love of the journalistic hunt. It's a heady cocktail.... a rather successful job of turning heartbreak into a quick, juicy read. All in all, she offers an interesting, if dark, account of the strange and dangerous places intemperate passions can lead us." "San Francisco Chronicle"" "Troubled lovers cling together in a sea of vodka and drugs in this journalist's memoir of her time in Russia .Cohen's language remains as journalistic at the end as it was at the beginning, but when she's describing the Dostoyevskian decline of her romance, her tale becomes simply riveting." "The New York Times Book Review"" "Sharp, fast-paced...a fascinating glimpse inside the world of newsgathering and of contemporary Russia." "Publishers Weekly"" "[A] fascinatingly moving memoir...told against a backdrop of incredible political upheaval and peppered with a cast of characters as extraordinary as those in the court of Versailles.

Reseña del editor:

In January 1998, while the rest of her newsroom is chasing the Monica Lewinsky story, television journalist Jennifer Cohen gets a lead that takes her out of covering that scandal and deep into another one—the trafficking of sex slaves from the former Soviet Union into the United States. Knowing that the college crush she never quite forgot works for a St. Petersburg newspaper, she hires him to help out. Much to their surprise, they fall madly in love over thousands of miles of telephone line. Within weeks, Cohen finds herself engaged to marry a man she barely knows and on a plane to Russia. No one could have predicted the total collapse that followed—of the Russian economy, of her fiancé’s sobriety, of Cohen's mental health and physical safety, and of her professional aspirations.
Cohen's vivid descriptions of her life in anything-goes Moscow—bribing government officials, meeting pimps in back alleys for interviews, being told by her boss to perpetuate American clichés about Russia in her pieces—are a colorful counterpart to the despair and loneliness that replaces the love between Cohen and her betrothed. Their battles with prescription drugs, alcoholic rages, and physical abuse are recounted with perspective and wit, offering a smart, poignant, and unvarnished look at a complicated relationship in a complicated land.
