In this compelling memoir, written as intimate letters to a dear friend, the daughter of Joseph Stalin shares memories of her life and family - and her evolving thoughts about them as she looks back. The missives begin with her father's death and meander back and forth through time...from simple joys of her sheltered childhood and on through the many tragedies that whirled around the Kremlin in her lifetime. Svetlana's candid personal story is at once a love letter to Russia, a rich analysis of her infamous father, and a haunting revelation of one human soul. (CH)
