Politics and Prose Presents MASHA GESSEN
Since the 2016 election, Masha Gessen's articles and commentary on Trump, Putin, hypocrisy, and demagoguery have become essential reading. A long-time journalist who has worked in both Russia and the U.S. and author of the acclaimed Putin biography THE MAN WITHOUT A FACE, Gessen in her latest book, THE FUTURE IS HISTORY, traces Russias unsettling post-Soviet trajectory by looking closely at the lives of four different people. All were born into a time that promised freedom; all have been bitterly disappointed. As she examines how the state has crushed not only these people's dreams but their sense of individual agency, Gessen tells a powerful cautionary tale deeply relevant to the West.

Gessen will be in conversation with Susan B. Glasser, POLITICO's chief international affairs columnist and host of its new weekly podcast, The Global Politico.
