    Good read, fascinating at times, memoir of Russian female journalist re living in Moscow around 1992 Social commentary, wry humor Made me wonder how different things might be now, would like to read a circa 2002 Moscow memoir from this author or another.

    It sort of falls apart over the second half Lots of hearsay and shenanigans claimed Still an interesting read I wonder how different life is now.
