If you see me out at a professional event, I'll be drinking white wine, or a gin and tonic, or maybe a really pale beer. Maybe. I do this for both our sakes because I'm one of those girls that spills. But last night I really should have forsaken this protective stance and ordered one of the never-clear, but ever-intriguing infused vodkas at the Russian Samovar. Cranberry, pepper, or even garlic vodka would have been the perfect companion for an evening of Soviet Union-themed literature at the FSG Reading series featuring David Bezmozgis reading from his debut novel, THE FREE WORLD. Scheduled for release in April, THE FREE WORLD is already delighting reviewers.
