Ten years ago journalist Jens Mühling 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 Mühling 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 mathematician who sincerely believes a thousand years of Russian history to be a fairy tale; a priest who ventures into the exclusion zone around Chernobyl to preach to those that stubbornly remain there. Jens Mühling shows us a country whose customs, contradictions, absurdities and attractions are still largely unknown beyond its borders.
