Today when I opened our mail, the first thing I saw was this advertisement on the back of a magazine:
My first thought was, “OMG! This must be a Russian Mail Order Bride catalog!” The glee that filled me at this prospect was, in truth, unnerving.
Fortunately, no — this was a copy of Sova Russian-American Magazine, which is not a Russian Mail Order Bride Catalog, but instead a magazine for Russians living in the United States.
Writer Michael Borovsky had sent along his (quite substantial) article on the Wren’s Nest.
And that’s just page 2 of 8. I even made the cut on page 6. Good thing I showered that day.
Brer Rabbit has been quite popular in Russia for at least a few decades. Award winning artist Latif Kazbekov published a version of the Brer Rabbit stories in 1992 with beautiful illustrations.
Now, if only someone could translate the article for me. In eight pages my dimples must be mentioned, right guys? Guys?
