2 more Russia books

Wandered out during a break in a meeting before Christmas; and into an independent, second hand booksellers.
Just finished fictional ‘Love of Worker Bees and a Great Love’ by Alexandra Kollontai. Not the kind of book I generally read but wanted to get something random. It’s a series of short stories, which just finished. She communicated interesting ideas about women and relationships after the revolution and the conflicts that arose with political ideologies and work. 

Next to read is ‘Lost and Found in Russia – encounters in a deep heartland’ by Susan Richards which is a non fictional account of her journeys in Siberia. Apparently she co-founded OpendemocracyRussia i.e. Soros platform which probably sets context but will give it a go.
