'An outstanding book ... The past, especially in St Petersburg, is around every corner.' - Geographical Magazine

'St Petersburg allows the reader to listen to an ongoing conversation, by turns boastful, intimate, mournful, raucous and anguished, in which Leningraders and St Petersburgers have, for more than half a century, made sense of their own city ... It is indispensable reading for anyone interested in what has actually happened to Russians in the last half-century' - Literary Review
