Good reading, and a relief after the serious books on Russia. It should be fun to sell. An account of a summer in Russia that was thoroughly enjoyed by the author, who went with no economical, sociological, political or other scientific bones to pick, who was not stumped by discomforts, whether in food, sanitary arrangements, travel accomodations. From Germany, through Poland, to Moscow, and then down to the Black and Caspian seas, she made friends with everyone, and with a small store of Russian, she talked with all she met. She had a good time, and though she found much she did not like, she found more that she did. She got into amusing situations, she met unique characters, and she tells of it all with a real feeling for the people, and the writer becomes friends with the reader in a gay trip through the country.
