Viv Groskop has discovered the meaning of life in Russian literature. As she knows from personal experience, everything that has ever happened in life has already happened in these novels: from not being sure what to do with your life (Anna Karenina) to being in love with someone who doesn’t love you back enough (The Master and Margarita), or being socially anxious about your appearance (all of Chekhov’s work).
Join Viv for an hour of literary self-help, with examples from the author’s own life. Only in a much less poetic way than Tolstoy probably intended.
Viv Groskop is an award-winning comedian and journalist.
