Buy a pair of Levi’s, lose the Russian accent, and turn yourself into an American.
Really, how difficult could it be?
You have no idea.
Absolutely hilarious, painfully honest and sometimes heart-breaking, the award-winning I Named My Dog Pushkin will have fans of David Sedaris and Samantha Irby howling with laughter at Margarita’s failures, her victories and the life lessons she learns as she grows as both a woman and an immigrant, in a world that often doesn’t appreciate either.
"I thoroughly enjoyed Margarita's witty and acerbic voice. This book was a delight!"
– Jen Mann, NYT Bestselling Author of People I Want to Punch in the Throat
