Elena Gorokhova moves to the US in her twenties to join her American husband and to break away from her mother, a mirror image of her Soviet Motherland: overbearing, protective, and difficult to leave. Before the birth of Elena’s daughter, her mother comes to help care for the baby and stays for twenty-four years, ordering everyone to eat soup and wear a hat, just as she did in Leningrad. Russian Tattoo is the story of a unique balancing act and a family struggle: three generations of strong women with very different cultural values, all living under the same roof and battling for control.
Elena Gorokhova ist 1955 in Leningrad geboren und 1980 in die USA gekommen – für sie ein ganz, ganz anderes Land. “At the time, new to the United States, Elena presents many questions and observations regarding Western Culture. What are multiple choice questions? How does one simply throw away half-eaten hamburgers? What is a hamburger? How can there be so much abundance in one supermarket?” (Leser) (91 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 337 Seiten noch günstig?
