An exploration of living, and loving, in Russia by an award- winning journalist. Both serious and humorous in its approach to Russian culture and attitudes. With a foreword by Fred Dinenage, author of the best-selling Kray Twins biography ‘Our Story’.
Moscow - the city of mail order Russian Brides, endless winters, and rivers of vodka. Or is it?
Follow one man's extraordinary real-life journey through the harsh and absurd realities of existence as a British expat in a metropolis so alien, it could be on another planet. Award-winning journalist Cary Johnston reveals the no holds barred true story of his life in modern-day Moscow, working for the Kremlin-funded Russia Today TV channel.
He uncovers what the Russians really think of us in the West and explores the humorous and surprising truth about relationships between Western men and Russian women, including his own bitter-sweet search for a Russian Bride.
With the recent international controversy surrounding the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter in the UK city of Salisbury, this is the most timely and revealing account of life in Russia. It reveals what drives the Russians, from the people in the streets of Moscow to the man at the very top, Vladimir Putin.
