Moscow – the city of mail order Russian Brides, endless winters, and rivers of vodka. Or is it?
Follow one man's extraordinary real-life journey through the harsh and absurd realities of existence as a British expat in a metropolis so alien, it could be on another planet.
Award-winning journalist Cary Johnston reveals the no holds barred true story of his life in Moscow, working for the Kremlin-funded Russia Today TV channel.
He uncovers what the Russians really think of us in the West and explores the humorous and surprising truth about relationships between Western men and Russian women, including his own bittersweet search for a Russian Bride.
With the current international controversy surrounding the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter in the UK city of Salisbury, this is the most timely and revealing account you will see of what drives the Russians, from the people in the streets of Moscow, to the man at the very top – Vladimir Putin.
It is a tale of love won and lost. A tale of fun and frolics. A tale of dangers and horror.
The book's Foreword is written by Fred Dinenage, veteran broadcaster and biographer of the bestselling book "Our Story – Reg and Ron Kray." He too once visited Moscow during the 1980 Olympics.
So, buckle up and enjoy the Russian ride!
