History Repeats Itself—with Elena Gorokhova

History Repeats Itself—with Elena Gorokhova


Today’s conversation is a perfect way to wrap up Season Four. I spoke with Elena Gorokhova about her debut novel, A Train to Moscow, which released in March. Elena’s insight was enriching. We discussed how her own family’s story inspired her novel, what it was like to grow up in Soviet Russia, her immigration story, and her perspective on what’s happening in Russia today.

    This Was probably the most understandable information concerning Russia that I have heard. I’m planning to listen with my whole family so that we can understand what is going on in that nation.
