Natalia, thank you so much for writing this!

Thank you so much for your comment and the recommendation! I will definitely check out Anya’s Ghost. It’s so good to know that what I wrote resonated with your experience and with other Russian immigrants/Russian Americans that have expressed the same. I totally know what you mean about the fear of “making something out to be more than what it is”; the disorientation of feeling so culturally different and yet so assimilated. There’s so much more to write (and maybe more TV to make!) about our experiences! ❤

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
