"Jennifer Gould roams the Former Soviet Union with a reporter's energy and a novelist's eye. Russia never seemed so weird, so funny and so human." -Malcolm Gladwell of The New Yorker
"[In] this dizzying memoir of getting mugged in taxis, finding a hippie landlady, [and] following Britain's Princess Anne around Mongolia -- we learn more about the weird realities of modern Russia than from any number of serious analyses." -The Washington Post Book World
"Vodka, Tears, and Lenin's Angel dance[s] across the page in a shower of sparks. [Gould] combines informed understanding with a storyteller's eye for detail and kindles in the reader some of her own passion for the place." -Vancouver Sun
"A breezy, entertaining, disarmingly personal memoir, and a very fine way to at least begin to understand the chaos, crime and corruption in [the FSU] today.... Jennifer Gould has brought something else to this entertaining, yet ultimately important book: a deep love for Russia.... And while there may be more scholarly studies of the collapse of communism ... there will be few as captivating and irresistible as this one." -Edmonton JournalAbout the Author:
