Jennifer Eremeeva’s Books

Eremeeva is a fine storyteller, and her tales of expat hi-life, cross-cultural confrontations, and run-ins with history make for enjoyable (and often salty and non-PC) reading. If you want to know what it's like to live in Russia for two decades without actually doing it, this is where I'd start.
--Russian Life

For readers embarking on a visit to Russia or an exploration of the country’s rich literature and culture, this lively primer offers a succinct, informative, and highly entertaining introduction to the country's complex and expansive history.

Based on Eremeeva’s two decades of living in the Russian capital, this engaging memoir knits together vignettes of cross-cultural marriage and expatriate life with sharp observation, colorful historical background, and engaging humor about Russia and her people.
