Tiana Yarik does well in narrating Kostyuchenko's collection of essays and stories of life in Russia as she saw it. Kostyuchenko, an émigré Russian journalist now living in Germany and an outspoken critic of Putin, has compiled a work that one critic has called a "haunting book of rare courage." Yarik, a non-native speaker of English, does a splendid job delivering this work. She is very clear and narrates at a pace that makes every word and phrase understandable. Her accent gives one the impression that it is the author herself presenting the work. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2023]
