Where Nights Are Longest: Travels by Car Through Western Russia

By Colin Thubron
Random House, 1984
212 pp. $16.95
Purchase

A travel book by a non-academic, non-diplomatic non-expert which is much more than light reading. It has great literary quality in its descriptions of people and countryside, and the encounters and conversations with Russians are well-drawn vignettes of individuals and of the system.
