Editorial Reviews

Review

Shortlisted for the 2015 Guardian First Book Award
Longlisted for the 2015 Samuel Johnson Prize
An Amazon.com Best Book of the Month, November 2014





"Captivating...keen observations."―New York Times Book Review

"Sparkling collection of essays."
Wall Street Journal



"This is a gripping and unsettling account of life in grim post-Soviet Russia."―Washington Post


"A scintillating take on a twisted reality."―Prospect Magazine


"A patchwork tapestry that leaves you shaking your head in disbelief."―The Guardian


"Everything you know about Russia is wrong, according to this eye-opening, mind-bending memoir of a TV producer caught between two cultures... the stylish rendering of the Russian culture, which both attracts and appalls the author, will keep the reader captivated."―Kirkus, Starred Review


"Sometimes horrifying but always compelling, this book exposes the bizarre reality hiding beneath the facade of a 'youthful, bouncy, glossy country.'"―Publishers Weekly

"It is hard to think of another work that better describes today's Russia; Nothing Is True and Everything Is Possible may very well be the defining book about the Putin era. This might seem like excessive praise for a relatively short, non-academic memoir by a reality-TV producer now living in London, but it is justified by the author's gimlet eye and reportorial skill."―Commentary Magazine

"A brilliant, entertaining, and ultimately tragic book about not only Russia, but the West."―Tablet Magazine
