All Things Russian: A Journey through Stories, Culture, and Food

I was born and raised in Russia when it was still a part of the Soviet Union, or USSR. For a long time, Russia was hidden behind the Iron Curtain and had a mysterious image of the Evil Empire to many Westerners.

But Russia was a mystery not just to outsiders, but to its own people as well. One of my college history professors used to refer to Russia as a country with unpredictable past. Why? Because every time a new leader came to power, all state-issued history books were changed and rewritten. And all history books were state-issued.

A lot of my non-Russian friends always ask me about Russia, so I started this blog to share what I know, what I like (and sometimes what I don’t like!), and what intrigues me.

I write fiction about Russia. All my books are on my website. Take a look if you’re curious: http://www.juliagousseva.com.

And I love to connect with people, so please feel free to comment. I’ll try to answer as soon as I can, usually within the same day.

THANK YOU for visiting my blog!!!!

Sincerely,

Julia
