"With its shimmering palaces and decaying mansions, enchanted forests and basements crammed with Soviet art, St. Petersburg is a city of ghosts and illusions where past and present, and reality and fiction are inextricably fused." "In this city blasted by history, the past is never far from view as Victoria Hammond immerses herself in the Russia of today: the eerie beauty of Dostoevski's streets on a white night; the friendship between a mafia boss and a Siberian tiger; a swim in the warmth of a moonlit Russian lake; and struggling artists and intellectuals eking out existences in single rooms." "Letters from St. Petersburg is a journey that reveals the strength and wonder of the places and people behind Russia's crumbling facades."--BOOK JACKET.
