Product description

Product Description

When most parents consider sending their child to summer camp, they imagine a sunny lake a few hours from home. In 1977, the parents of 11-year-old Kirsten Koza sent their pigtailed, sass-talking offspring to camp in the Soviet Union — with only fifty dollars in her pocket.

Lost in Moscow tells the story of Kirsten’s unusual summertime hi-jinks: evading the Soviet Red Army in a foot race through Red Square, receiving radiation treatments for a minor case of tonsillitis, and making a gut-churning, unauthorized parachute jump — without being certain whether her parachute would even stay on.

CBC (Radio Canada International) says Lost in Moscow is “the ultimate what-I-did-last-summer essay ever.”

CHRY (radio, Toronto): “Kirsten Koza is like Judy Blume on acid.”

Uptown magazine: “Koza, who has a degree in theatre, knows how to tell a story.”

In the Hills magazine: "Lost in Moscow is a funny and fascinating look at the Western World’s bogeyman of the day—communism—through the fresh eyes of a child."

Kirsten Koza is a humorist and adventure travel writer. Her first book, Lost in Moscow, was published by Turnstone Press and is available in paperback.

Kirsten is a contributor to Travelers’ Tales anthologies. Her story “Chasing Tornadoes” is in The Best Women’s Travel Writing (2013, volume 9), her Kyrgyzstan adventure “Mare’s Milk, Mountain Bikes, Meteors & Mammaries; a nipply night in nomad’s land” is in The Best Women’s Travel Writing (Volume 8) and her misadventure “Easter Island: The Chilean with the Brazilian” is in Leave the Lipstick, Take the Iguana, the 9th book in the Travelers’ Tales best-selling humour series.

Kirsten has a BA in theatre from Dalhousie University in Canada, and completed the post graduate programme at East 15 Acting School in England. Photos from her adventures can be seen on her website at
