Russians as foreigners: how Soviet writers felt America in the beginning of XX century

One of my favorite writers is two people.

They wrote together so compassionately that it's hard to understand where one voice fades and another enters.

They wrote some amazing and funny novels and then they went traveling to US writing pieces for "Pravda" (meaning "Truth") communist newspaper.

Although censors were on the rage then, my fav authors somehow made their articles worth reading. No communistic propaganda, no stereotyping or blaming. Just absorbing what they've seen and telling stories.

Here: Ilf & Petrov's American Road Trip.
