You Are One Of Them, Elliot Holt

This was the best novel I've read this year, easily.
When 2 young girls write to Yuri Andropov in 1982, neither could have known that their lives would be changed forever.
The narrator's haunting voice leads the reader through a tangle of betrayals and deceptions, through Cold War D.C. to modern Moscow, and offers no easy answers.
Powerful and memorable, this is an exceptional debut from a talented novelist.
