Ten years ago journalist Jens Muhling met Juri, a Russian television producer whose job it was to sell stories to TV stations in Germany but who always maintained that 'The true stories are more unbelievable than anything I could invent.' Ever since, Jens Muhling has been travelling through Russia in search of stories that appear too unbelievable to be true: a hermit from the Taiga who only recently found out that there was a world beyond the woods, a priest who ventures into the exclusion zone around Chernobyl to preach to those that stubbornly remain there, and many more. Jens Muhling shows us a country whose customs, contradictions, absurdities and attractions are still largely unknown beyond its borders.
Jens Muhling edited a German newspaper in Moscow and has been working for the Berlinnewspaper Der Tagesspiegel since 2005. His journalism has seen him awarded the Axel-Springer-Preis and the Peter-Boenisch-Gedachtnispreis.
