A Journey into Russia
X

For the last ten years, journalist Jens Muhling has been traveling through Russia in search of stories that appear unbelievable: a hermit from the Taiga who only recently discovered there was a world beyond the woods; a mathematician who believes a thousand years of Russian history to be a fairy tale; a priest who ventures into the exclusion zone around Chernobyl to preach to those that stubbornly remain there. Muhling shows us a country whose customs, contradictions, absurdities, and attractions are still largely unknown beyond its borders (Translated by Eugene H. Hayworth).

Jens Mühling, born in 1976, was editor of a German language newspaper in Moscow between 2003 and 2005 and has since been working for the Berlin newspaper Der Tagesspiegel. He has won the Axel Springer Prize and the Peter Boenisch Prize for reportage.

Reviews:

‘To understand the ambiguities, contradictions, absurdities and complexities of the Russian soul, the advice was always to read Gogol. The advice now would be to read Jens Mühling. There is a shock of discovery and a shot of pleasure on every page.’The Times

‘A compelling story of an author’s journey into deepest Siberia in a quest to meet a woman determined to remain cut off from the outside world ‘The Telegraph
