Need an Xmas Gift for Your Russian Cousin?
We’ve just learned that Freakonomics — a.k.a. Ð¤Ñ€Ð¸ÐºÐ¾Ð½Ð¾Ð¼Ð¸ÐºÐ° — has been published in Russian. Here’s more information. I know very little Russian but among my most prized books are a handful of Isaac Bashevis Singer novels in Russian that I picked up while visiting Moscow several years back. And even though my elders were chased out of Russia a few generations ago, my wife and I named our daughter Anya — which is the Russian form of Anna, which is the Anglo form of Chana, or Hannah. So I am most pleased to see Freakonomics appear in this language.
