Explanation of the Book:

To The Reader: I wrote this book during the crazy years of my life. I cannot express enough gratitude to the doubters, haters, and stoppers. They made me realize the power of my dreams. Sometimes in life you are shaken out of your trance and the Universe makes you realize the power of you. I dedicate this book to those tough times. A Soul That Ran Wild has grown with me. It has cried and whined with me. It has stumbled and brushed herself off with me. It has experienced the raw emotions that I have felt. It has stood up to both internal and external critics. It has lived in me. That is why it is original and raw. It is a story of both breaking and resurgence. It is a tale of believing when no one else did. It is the story of rediscovering myself at a time when I thought I was lost. I was educated that words were powerful. But only through experience I realized that they also had the power to heal and to burn you until nothing can break you. These are my words. I hope they help you find yours and make you realize that dreams do come true. So keep dreaming!

Explanation of the Book:

Each chapter is a bonne bouche, possessing its own particular flavour, from sweet to acrid-bitter. Hobson's characters are often wonderfully quixotic and so is the spirit she finds everywhere at this crux in Russia's history. She drinks with derelicts, hangs out with gypsies, and watches investigators go about the grim business of exhuming purge victims, and giving them the Christian burial they have been denied for seventy years. Her style is deft: she manages to render the scenes through which she passes with needle-sharp precision.' Financial Times This witty and yet deeply moving, acutely observed tale of Charlotte Hobson's year in Russia takes us to the heart of a country many of us continue to be fascinated by and struggle to understand. Or as the TLS put it: 'Hobson writes with such beguiling directness that it is hard not to feel intimate with her and her characters. Few books evoke so much of Russian life, with so little effort.
