An Immigrant's Love Letter to the West

Konstantin Kisin

Write Review

Rated 0

Autobiography: arts & entertainment

As anti-Western sentiment grows and patriotism comes under fire, Russian immigrant Konstantin Kisin dares to say what society has deemed unspeakable: Britain is one of the best countries in the world. After all, if an immigrant can't publicly profess his appreciation for this country, who can?

For all of the West's failings - terrible food, cold weather, and questionable politicians with funny hair to name a few - it has its upsides. Konstantin would know. Growing up in the Soviet Union, he experienced first-hand the horrors of a socialist paradise gone wrong, having lived in extreme poverty with little access to even the most basic of necessities. It wasn't until he moved to the UK that Kisin found himself thriving in an open and tolerant society, receiving countless opportunities he would never have had otherwise.

Funny, provocative and unswervingly perceptive, An Immigrant's Love letter to the West interrogates the developing sense of self-loathing the Western sphere has adopted and offers an alternative perspective. Exploring race politics, free speech, immigration and more, Kisin argues that wrongdoing and guilt need not pervade how we feel about the West - and Britain - today, and that despite all its ups and downs, it remains one of the best places to live in the world.

After all, if an immigrant can't publicly profess their appreciation for this country, who can?
