Letters to the Editor


To the Editors:

It is with great pleasure that I found the return of the Notes from a Russian Village section in the current issue of Russian Life, after a hiatus of several issues. Village Notes has long been one of my favorites, and is usually the first thing I read in the magazine. Laura Williams is the best writer (in English) in your magazine. Not only is she a storyteller, but she writes of the human condition. So did Pushkin, Chekhov, and many others. Having spent a little time in rural Siberia, I feel as if I know many of the people she writes about. What distinguishes Russian Life is that you are willing to devote a couple of pages to the human condition as articulated by the skilled hand of Laura Williams. Please keep her articles in the magazine going.

With many thanks,
