Moscow – the city of mail order Russian Brides, endless winters and rivers of vodka. Or is it?
Follow one man’s humorous and irreverent journey of living and loving, through the harsh and absurd realities of existence as a British expat in a metropolis so alien to him, it could be on another planet.
Former BBC journalist Cary Johnston reveals the true story of his experiences in modern-day Moscow, whilst working for the Kremlin-funded Russia Today TV channel.
He uncovers what the Russians really think of us in the West and explores the surprising truth about relationships between Western men and Russian women, including his own bittersweet search for a Russian Bride.
This is the most candid account of life in Russia you will find. A street level journey of nightclubs, dating and spies. It reveals what drives the Russians from the people at the bottom, to the man at the very top, Vladimir Putin.
It is not an academic essay or a political commentary, but a delicious romp through Russian dating and expat culture shock. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!
