Publisher's Summary

The author's name is known all over Russia. She was 27 in the late 20th century when her name joined those of the country's top 10 entrepreneurs. She has written an autobiographical novel in which nothing is fabricated. In order to maintain confidentiality, all the names have been changed.

Everything described in this book is based on real events.

A 15-year-old's parents take her to the United States. There, she studies at the harsh school of life of someone who has lost her home, her language, her culture, and her ideals. In her endless search for herself in this new capitalist world, she cannot hold down even a simple waitress job for two months.

In 1989, when the Iron Curtain falls, I.D. returns to her homeland. Suddenly a stunning Russian success, she finds herself among the financial, industrial, and cultural elite, among ministers and oligarchs. Through an astonishing combination of circumstances, in literally a few months, her name is listed alongside the most prominent entrepreneurs in Russia.

Science fiction? Hardly. This account is powerfully based in facts.

    "Long but worth it"

    It was long and hard to listen at times I found Ilona to be over exaggerating on the level of emotions she feels and sometimes repetitive. She is deeply depressed. However I admire her work and enjoyed it very much. She captured my attention in full. All the subjects on which she touches interest me in a way that I can relate and any girl can relate. Her quest for finding happiness and the meaning to life and love are a detailed analysis and she actually manages to find the answers to some of the questions that even older wiser sophisticated people are still asking themselves.
