Most books about the Soviet Union focus on politics, food shortages, or lack of democratic freedoms. This collection portrays everyday experiences of a young girl growing up in the Soviet Union of the 1970’s and 1980's. Childhood can be a magical and innocent time oblivious to political regimes and problems.That’s what these twelve stories strive to convey.Über den Autor:
Julia Gousseva was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. As she grew up, she saw her country go through dramatic social, economic, and political changes in the early 1990's. Her fiction is influenced by her life experiences and her love of Russian fairy-tales (no, the promise of the bright communist future is not one of her favorite fairy-tales -- she prefers happy endings). Julia lives in Arizona with her husband and her son.
