"Delightful...Dickey’s travelogue is truly heartwarming, drawing strength from the honesty and openness of the people she visits and revisits and opening windows on the opinions of the Russian people on nearly everything, from homosexuality to Putin. Fascinating and a balm to readers enduring the current xenophobic plague." ―BOOKLIST

"Lisa Dickey has chosen an inspired way to tell a most fascinating story about the evolution of modern Russia. Bears in the Streets is brilliant, real and readable." ―former U.S. Secretary of State MADELEINE ALBRIGHT

"[A] spirited account..that reveals true Russian personality." ―KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Lisa Dickey’s sharply realized memoir is a meditation on time, friendship and the boundaries we create as well as those we cross. In thoughtful, often-hilarious, and always page-turning prose, she brings us with her across Russia over the course of twenty years. At a moment where the incurious lead political conversations, Dickey's simple act of engagement is a radical one." ―SARAH WILDMAN, journalist and author of Paper Love: Searching for the Girl My Grandfather Left Behind

“Dickey weaves a lively, heartfelt, and engrossing account spanning a dramatic period of Russian history. Her tales from Vladivostok to St. Petersburg remind us of the human element so often obscured by geopolitics – an important contribution at a critical moment for Russia and the world.” – AMBASSADOR WILLIAM J. BURNS, President, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
