Review by Barbara Lemmon
The Anna Karenina Fix was a surprisingly good read. The subtitle is Life Lessons from Russian Literature, so I forged ahead as was intrigued, having read War and Peace last summer.
Of course I was unfamiliar with the majority of the book, but that did not prevent my enjoyment of it. Vic Groskop is a talented storyteller in addition to being a real hoot! Her jaunts around the Russian countryside, her ability to speak Russian and her passion for their literature drew me into her charming tale. She shares much of her true life story and has given me a desire to delve once again into the vault of Russian Literature.
