NPR stories about Olga Grushin
A new comedy from Ian McEwan; the true-life adventures of the Victorian Brit who stole the secrets of tea from China; a Kenyan contemporary of Obama's father remembers the Mau Mau rebellion; and a new Russian master spins surprising fictional gold from the Godot-like tale of Soviet citizens waiting in an endless line.
Rona Brinlee of The Bookmark in Atlantic Beach, Fla., recommends The Dream Life of Sukhanov by Olga Grushin in her conversation about summer reading with Susan Stamberg on Morning Edition. "This novel is about the choices and compromises we make in order to get what we think we want," Brinlee says.
