Tania Amochaev

Tania Romanov Amochaev was born in Belgrade, Serbia of two displaced émigrés—a White Russian father and a Croatian mother—and spent her childhood in San Sabba, a refugee camp in Trieste.  She is the author of tales of travel to lands as diverse as Russia, India, Japan, and Morocco, and is currently writing a book that starts with her father's flight as an infant from Russia during the Revolution of 1917, follows him through life in Serbia, and to San Francisco's Tsarist Russian community. The essay on her visit to her father's home village in the deep heart of Russia during repressive Communist times was published in The Best Travel Writing, Volume 10.
