Краткое описание

Just Send Me Word: A True Story of Love and Survival in the Gulag.

Lev and Svetlana, lovers in Stalin's Soviet Union, were kept apart for 14 years—first by World War II, and then by the paranoid caprices of Stalin's Gulag, where Lev was sent for an imagined offense. Incredibly, he one day received a letter from Svetlana, and in his remaining years of imprisonment the two exchanged some 1500 smuggled pieces of correspondence, keeping their devotion alive through the worst years of postwar Russia. In these letters, interpreted and put into context by Russian history professor Orlando Figes, Lev not only carries on a relationship that will outlast even the Soviet Union itself—the author was able to interview the couple, then in their 90s, in person—he also records a day-by-day account of life in the Gulag. "One is overcome with admiration for the kindness, bravery and generosity of people in terrible peril.... It is impossible to read without shedding tears."—Financial Times
