Russia, UK: Olga Freer's Book

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Western Europe, Russia, United Kingdom, Arts & Culture, Ethnicity & Race, Media & Journalism, Migration & Immigration, Women & Gender

The UK’s Daily Mail reviews “a book [1] written by a young Russian woman about her experiences living in London” – and White Sun of the Desert reviews the book review [2]: “[…] it is little wonder that her book is popular in Moscow, as thousands of Russian women will be reading with glee about how fat the British women are and how awful their cooking is. But I’d also hope that plenty of Brits get around to reading it, because the book – coupled with its popularity in Moscow – will almost certainly reveal as much about Russia as it does about Britain.”
