Margie Fillin. The author of these very frank diaries was born in the USSR, and left to the United States already from Russia. Margie Fillin is a creative pseudonym of her. 2x volume book is her debut as a writer. But her literary language is like of a mature master. Volume #2 called “An Unwelcome Person” and tells the rest of the “love story” between A Russian woman and an American man. The diaries themselves were born not easy. Read it. And then you will understand why she was writing the diaries for several years, and why the author preferred to put her nickname on the cover instead of a real name.
