In reading the exchange of long and fascinating letters between the author, an American writer, and his cousin a Russian economist, one can take a trip into reality; real America and the real Soviet Union (Russia) as they both were until 1996. It delves deeply into the Russian psyche and speaks to the future of both countries

This is indeed a different kind of history book. Soon a new Russia will take shape. There is a consensus among many intellectuals in Moscow that the Russia of the future will be patterned more like the new China than the western concept of a capitalist society. Post Communist Russia has arrived in the midst of world wide economic chaos. 'GENES' is a contribution to the need that situation is creating for better understanding between Americans and Russians.


Excerpt

"We found him and shot him and killed some of his troops before we pulled out. When we
returned we found the Nazi reinforcements, that arrived too late to save the officer, burned all of the buildings and hanged ten people. They claimed there was an informer among them. When I looked up and saw the frozen bodies hanging there, I didn't feel anything. I felt no pity or remorse for being responsible for their deaths. They were just more dead bodies. I had seen so many by then that it was just like looking at trees. I only grieved when one of our partisans died. I broke down when Sergius was killed."



Professional Reviews

New Times, Moscow
ALEXANDER PUMPIANSKI, Editor in Chief, THE NEW TIMES, MOSCOW: Literature is always humanitarianism, brotherhood, an all-human odyssey, a reincarnation in other people's lives. In this case the author tries to reconstruct what a private life could have been, had it taken a slightly different course. The instructive device of split personality is, in fact, used to present a united personality, torn in two by the century of the greates schism; they are put into extremely different social positions, and pushed through numerous battles and dramas, apart or together. The Russian American is an idealist, dreamer, fighter - an eternally restless heart.

Pedagogical Institute, ST. PETERSBURG
YEVGENIA NIKOLAEVNA MAYOROVA, Herzen Pedagogical Institute, ST. PETERSBURG Your book makes one think of a huge documentary photograph taken with a long exposure for many years, almost two human lifetimes. It is not a family chronicle or a history of a single part of a family's life; it is simply a story, a story that appears through two human souls, a story that is reflected in letters, where letters are mixed with tears, words with pain, facts with tragedy, where people are not considered as representatives of two different political systems, where the search for similarities is more important than the search for differences, because the main characters of this story are brothers.

University of Hartford, USA
SVETLANA ROZOVSKY, Professor of Russian Studies, University of Hartford: Thank you very much for the wonderful book. I enjoyed it a lot! The genre of the book is perfect and very up-to-date. Every line sounds so realistic to me. It is impossible to express myself and all my feelings the book aroused in me. I would be very happy to invite you to speak to my Russian Studies class.......
