A Moscow Mom's Everyday Struggle For A Better Life

A personal message from the author:

With a great interest to the Russian culture, there are many books about Russian spies, criminals, oligarchs, mafia and no any about normal people and everyday life of the modern Russian people. I want to change it.

We also saying in Russia: Moscow is not Russia – it's a totally different country. Readers of my book will have a chance to see the real Russia and even real Moscow from the critical point of view of the Siberian person who moved to Moscow (it was the hardest relocation ever – not even close to relocation to Australia to to US).

I was working as a lawyer in Russia (Moscow and Krasnoyarsk) as a working mom with toddler and I show my life through funny stories and strange Russian customs and traditions.

— Elena Bobkova
