From Afar by Frank Scozzari

‘From Afar’
The memoir of a hopeless romantic's search for love in Russia.

Morgan Stanfield, a naive romantic jaded by past love, leaves the familiar surroundings of his Santa Barbara home to search for love in the far northern city of Saint Petersburg, Russia. On his four-day odyssey he encounters a Russian beauty, a prostitute, a wise old babushka, an American chauvinist, intellectuals, the Russian mafia, and the ‘face’ of love, and comes to know how love from a distance can be more captivating than love close on hand. From Afar is a timeless tale of a man’s struggle to find love and himself.
