Brittany E | 2 comments Hey, guys! Have you heard about Gina Ochsner's debut novel, The Russian Dreambook of Color and Flight? It's a darkly funny story of love and loss, ghosts and getting by, set in the crumbling post-Soviet city of Perm.

Gina is not from Russia herself, but she's been fascinated by Eastern European culture for years...even engaged a decade of loving research. Want to know why? Ask her!

See you there,

Tom Funny you should mention it. A friend and I just stumbled across this at Borders yesterday(after a lengthy lunch discussion re Russian matters far and wide: Tolstoy's "Confession;" death of Pushkin and Lermontov by duel; Chekhov's "The Duel" and on. A most delightful way to spend a Friday afternoon), and we weren't quite sure what to make of it.

Brittany E | 2 comments Yes, it's definitely a tricky title...impossible to summarize. If you enjoy character-driven fiction, though, it's worth checking out!
