Better Than Fiction

David Remnick provides a wonderfully written often suspense filled and historically jammed packed look at the times and events leading up to and encompassing the end of the USSR. Interwoven into his recount of what happened are fascinating details of the challenges of every day life of the common man in the Soviet Union during those times. It is a wonderful book and twenty years later, still relevant.. .

Thank you, Laura E
