'A real treat: vividly told, wickedly funny and brave enough to confront the cliches and misinformation that still abound about life on both sides of the old iron curtain' Guardian 'Fantastically quirky, wry and funny' Sophie Kinsella 'Comic, rich in atmosphere and full of irresistible Russian languor' Wendy Holden, Daily Mail 'This novel is certainly romantic, and certainly witty - but very much more besides ... A novel that stays with you for all the right reasons' Joanna Trollope
