Praise for Berezina "The narration is wry and marked by a cheerful fatalism. Mr. Tesson is a witty and knowledgeable road companion."--The Wall Street Journal "Both the writer and the reader feel like they've really been through something when the journey is done."--Kirkus Reviews "Compelling."--Booklist "Berezina succeeds brilliantly as a sly commentary on--and a challenge to conventional thinking about--today's contention between Russia and the EU, and the rutted habits of the popular Western mind."--Ron Slate, On the Seawall "Hilarious, introspective, contemplative, professorial, disturbingly graphic, and always engrossing."--Ultimate Motorcycling "From beginning to end, the story of Berezina is enthralling, funny, and terrifying. At the same time, it is magnificently written." --RTL "For me, Berezina is Sylvain [Tesson]'s most important book." --Jean-Christophe Rufin, Le Figaro "Tesson's latest book is probably his best [ . . . ] his style, which has reached maturity, is up to capturing the horror of the period, full of blood and drama, but also of humor, alcohol (vodka only) . . . You feel that Tesson is in his element." --Libération
