From Library Staff

In 2013 Greene, NPR's Moscow bureau chief, traveled 6,000 miles of the Trans-Siberian Railway interviewing ordinary Russians in a variety of situations to capture the everyday realities of post-Soviet Russia. The resulting travelogue reads like a series of episodic radio pieces in the NPR style.

An American NPR journalist embarks on a train trip from Moscow to Vladivostok. Actually, there are two trips separated by about 3 years. The author opens up a window into Russian life and thoughts of ordinary people. It is a bit confusing as the two train trips are intertwined in the telling. It is also a bit annoying that the author seems to expect answers to questions that can't be answered such as "Where is Russia heading?". Nevertheless this is an insightful book.
