Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A subtly crafted reflection of both the bleak and golden shadings of Russian life . . . Its tones belong more to the realm of poetry than journalism. -The New York Times Book Review

At age twenty-five, Andrea Lee joined her husband, a Harvard doctoral candidate in Russian history, for his eight months' study at Moscow State University and an additional two months in Leningrad. Published to enormous critical acclaim in 1981, Russian Journal is the award-winning author's penetrating, vivid account of her everyday life as an expatriate in Soviet culture, chronicling her fascinating exchanges with journalists, diplomats, and her Soviet contemporaries. The winner of the Jean Stein Award from the National Academy of Arts and Letters-and the book that launched Lee's career as a writer-Russian Journal is a beautiful and clear-eyed travel-writing classic.

Lee] takes us wherever she is, conveying a feeling of place and atmosphere that is the mark of real talent.

-The Washington Post Book World

A book of very great charm . . . Lee] records what she saw and heard with unassuming delicacy and exactness.
