Viv Groskop with Katy Brand

Journalist and novelist Viv Groskop joins Katy Brand in the Penguin studio to talk about her

Book ‘The Anna Karenina Fix’, a very funny memoir and self-help book which explains how Russian literature has some valuable life lessons. As a young child Viv believed her surname was Russian, which led her to studying, living there and becoming editor at large for Russian Vogue. She later found out she’s not the slightest bit Russian, but recounts what she learnt along the way from the country and its literature. Viv brings in a hedgehog, a make-up compact and an album by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers which inspired her writing.
