* * *“There is no doubt about the popularity of Archimandrite Tikhon’s book: they read it in the subway, discuss it in intellectual circles and blogs.”
—Kommersant “Finally a book has come out about religion without any pious editing, written by a real author. Everything in it breathes the personal experience and excellent writing style of Father Tikhon, and this style is comparable to the great storytellers of our age, from Chekhov to Konetsky and Dovlatov.”
—Rossiskaya Gazeta (Russian News).
