revolutionary reviews

Bearing in mind the turnmoil that Nabokov and his family faced running away from the revolution it seems apt to post some book reviews next week that are set against the background of that period of history. So expect to see some thoughts about Dr Zhivago, Quiet Flows the Don and the Don Flows to the Sea as well as some historical stuff including the opus on the revolution, A People’s Tragedy by Dr Orlando Figes (someone who once taught me about historical research but sadly not about russian history).
