I have studied in Moscow during the seventies and stayed in USSR for 12 years. I am very nostalgic about my student days there and since then did not have a chance to visit my Moscow. Please suggest the titles of the best (in your opinion) fiction/nonfiction published in the postsoviet era, and whether it is possible to purchase them through paypal.
Thanks.

I believe you'd better ask somebody in Russia to buy some of these books.

Good luck,
