Last quote by Francis X. Clines

Appreciation for the ordinary people, not the commissars and party hacks, was the ultimate truth a correspondent could finally get out of that benighted place, and Boris had set us up for that just by being Boris – a great performer and master of surviving life as much as jockeying with his damned verbs and case endings. Boris was the living vulgate. The ordinary good people I met there glinted with facets of Boris.feedback
