RussianCoupby Kira von Korff ’89

Kira von Korff’s family is from pre-revolutionary Russia, and she grew up in a Russian household, living in both the United States and Russia. Says the author of the book: “I am the girl and it is a true story.” Her 52-page book addresses the lives of the Russian people during the change from Communism to democracy. Though technically a democratic government prevails in the country,
it is not like any other version of democracy. Drama, adventure, and safety are the main concerns of the Russian people; their lives are filled with tragedy and a triumph at the same time.
