How Did We Come to Know You?

Keith Gessen

Andryusha left the Soviet Union with his parents and brother Dima when he was six years old. They moved to America. In the summer of 2008 he moved back to Moscow to take care of his elderly Russian Jewish grandmother, who was almost ninety. One evening she told him she was going for a walk. Not much later she falls on the stairs and he calls an ambulance.
