Book Club: "A Terrible Country" by Keith Gessen

Do you love to talk about what you’re reading? Join a book club to share your thoughts and hear what others have to say about books that spark discussion, curiosity, and debate!

Join the discussion as we go over Keith Gessen’s A Terrible Country.

Russian-American Andrei moves from Brooklyn to Moscow to care for his ailing grandmother during the height of Putin’s consolidation of power. When he becomes entangled with a group of leftists, Andrei's politics and his allegiances are tested, and he is forced to come to terms with the Russian society he was born into and the American one he has enjoyed since he was a kid. A novel about Russia, exile, family, love, history and fate, A Terrible County asks what you owe the place you were born, and what it owes you.
