A Russian in Berlin
Posted July 28, 2011on:
Do you find yourself checking your email ten times a day and all you get is junk mail? What are you hoping for? A love letter? News from a friend? Confirmation that someone has bought your ebook?
When I find myself checking my mail too often and nothing arrives, I pick up this book and randomly make a selection. I don’t know what they are. Stories? Episodes? Anecdotes?
To me they are like entertaining letters from an old Russian friend in Berlin. If you get letters anywhere near as good as these in your inbox you are very lucky. Wladimir is a minor celebrity in Berlin. But I suspect if you’ve never been there, this book will be largely without interest.
