Summary
In this literary memoir, which spans the period between the mid-1940s and the early 1980s, R. A. D. Ford shares his long-standing fascination with the Russian people, expanding on his political memoir, Our Man in Moscow. From totalitarian repression to life and art in the splintered, chaotic ruins of a superpower, A Moscow Literary Memoir offers a unique perspective on Soviet life from a man who has spent more time in Russia than any other Western diplomat
