Roaming from Tashkent to San Francisco, this is the true story of one budding writer's strange encounters with the fanatics who are devoted - absurdly! melancholically! ecstatically! - to the Russian classics. Combining fresh readings of the great Russians from Gogol to Goncharov with the sad and funny stories of the lives they continue to influence, The Possessed introduces a brilliant and distinctive new voice: comic, humane, charming, poignant and completely, and unpretentiously, full of an infectious love for literature.

Like nothing I’ve listened to before
This book is dream-like, it’s a sweet and transparent recount of the author’s clearheaded adventures in literary academia. Her narration is soft and sweet and infuses the text with self-effacing melancholy. Five stars.
