Now, determined to escape the bleak visions of his narratives, he takes on a film project in the heart of Russia while also embarking on a new love affair back home in Paris. But soon enough, the diversion he seeks eludes him, intimacy proves too arduous, and Carrv(R)re is left peering into the dark mirror of his own life.Set in Paris and Kotelnich, a small post-Soviet town,My Life as a Russian Noveltraces Carrere's pursuit of two obsessions-the disappearance of his Russian grandfather and his erotic fascination with a woman he loves but cannot keep from destroying. In prose that is elegant and passionate, Carrere weaves the strands of his story into a travelogue of a journey inward.
