Review

“[Groskop is] a delight, a reader’s reader whose professional and personal experiences have allowed her to write the kind of book that not only is complete unto itself, but makes you want to head to the library and revisit or discover the great works she loves.”
(The Washington Post)

“For anyone intimidated by Russia’s daunting literary heritage, this humorous yet thoughtful introduction will serve as the perfect entrée. Journalist and comedian Groskop skillfully interweaves her personal obsession with life lessons from the country’s great authors…Most of all, she advocates reading for fun, and of oneself—a life lesson, indeed.”
(Publishers Weekly)

“Enchanting.”
(The Observer)

“This wonderfully entertaining book is a passionate, hilarious, joyful love letter to Russian literature.”
(Allison Pearson The Telegraph (*****))

"Everyone's happiness project looks different, and for Viv Groskop, reading great works of Russian literature held the key to a happier life. In this hilarious, candid, and thought-provoking memoir, she explains how she used lessons from Russian classics to understand herself better and to create the life she wanted.”
(Gretchen Rubin author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Happiness Project)

"A beguiling tasting menu of some of the finest reading experiences of my life. Witty, likeable, and lighthearted, Viv Groskop invites us to embrace the work of these august Russian dead souls as belonging to us all.”
(Lionel Shriver)

“Funny, clever and joyful. I loved this book.”
(Nina Stibbe best-selling author of Love, Nina: Despatches from Family Life)

"Learn how to hack life 19th-century Russian style! You'll totally be like Anna Karenina without getting (spoiler alert) run over by a train!"
(Gary Shteyngart) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
