For all of us who wish we were more adventurous in travel and in love, R.J. Fox is the perfect guide to Ukraine and the heart. Love & Vodka is funny, moving, and full of surprises.
“Welcome to Ukraine (never The Ukraine) where, from the violent rugby scrum at the airport baggage carousel to inoperable midnight plumbing and a potential grandmother-in-law who doubles as the queen of serial vodka shots, R.J. Fox stumbles through one misadventure after another, all in the name of love. The reader is along for the ride and will walk away shaky-legged, enlightened, and undoubtedly able to correctly pronounce Dnipropetrovsk.”
Love & Vodka is an old-fashioned love story told with uncommon wit and unabashed warmth. R.J. Fox guides his readers through the dangers of cold showers, straight liquor, and unfamiliar customs, to sweet new romance under gentle Ukrainian rain.
A witty, engaging story of introspection, taking chances, and one American’s journey into Ukraine, a land that needs understanding now more than ever.
Imagine a world where people think, act, and respond differently to the way you’ve always known—and then let R.J. Fox take you there. Not enough has been written about everyday life in the former Soviet Union, and it’s captured beautifully here.
An utterly charming romp of a novel, rich with humor and culture shock—and at its heart, a solid gold love story. Don’t miss it!

Love & Vodka is an easy ride to this foreign land. The kind of travelogue you want to take to bed or the beach or the metro … one to be read when you have the time to truly savor a travel experience.
