What La Generalista has to say:

What a lovely book! Anyone studying or interested in learning more about modern Russian society must read “What Every Russian Knows (and You Don’t)”. Olga Fedina does a wonderful job bringing Russian pop culture to life and putting it into every day context. This book is made only better in finding each and every reference in between chapters, viewing or listening to what Fedina has just described.

Each chapter also includes a list of Russian phrases made popular by the movies, songs or performances mentioned, complete with English translations. This really helps deepen the reader’s understanding and appreciation of the pop culture references.

“What Every Russian Knows (and You Don’t)” is available for purchase at Amazon.
