Short biography
"Andrea Lee was born in an educated, upper-middle-class family in Philadelphia. She grew up during the turbulent years of the Civil Rights movement. Educated in the best schools, Lee finished her master’s degree in English from Harvard. At Harvard, she met and married Tom, who was specializing in Russian history. Subsequently, she accompanied Tom, who was awarded a fellowship to study in Russia, where she lived for ten months. Her experiences in Russia were recorded in a journal. After a year’s stay, both Andrea and Tom returned to the United States, where Andrea took up a job and worked for several years as a staff reporter with the New Yorker. Now she lives with her husband in Paris."
