The Gentleman From Finland Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two days aboard what he believes is the Trans-Siberian Express, the author of this humorous memoir discovers heâ??s on the wrong train. It is 1987, and he is traveling in the Soviet Union, holding a train ticket that mistakenly identifies him as a Finn. In fact, he is a short, dark-skinned Mexican-American-Russian-Jew, who speaks only enough Russian to proclaim to anyone who will listen that he is Bob, the tourist from America.

Book News Annotation:

Here's a good travellers' tale of train riding in the USSR in 1987.
