"Moscow excursion" (1934), the first book written by an Anglo-Irish writer P.L. Travers, who later became the author of famous Mary Poppins novels, is an interesting historical evidence and a bright, ironic, witty literary work. Travers faithfully conveys her impressions of the trip to Soviet Russia in autumn of 1932, but lacks empathy for the tragedy of people, which she witnesses. Soviet Russia, as well as Russia as a whole, is a country civilizationally alien to her.
