About this product
- DescriptionThis selection of Boris Pasternak's correspondence with his parents and sisters from 1921 to 1960-including more than illustrations and photos-is an authoritative, indispensable introduction and guide to the great writer's life and work. His letters are accomplished literary works in their own right, on a par with his poetry in their intensity, frankness, and dazzling stylistic play. In addition, they offer a rare glimpse into his innermost self, significantly complementing the insights gained from his work. They are especially poignant in that after 1923 Pasternak was never to see his parents again.
- Author BiographyNicolas Pasternak Slater is the son of Boris Pasternak's sister Lydia. He has divided much of his life between working as a medical specialist in hematology and as a translator, publishing both scientific and literary translations, including Boris Pasternak's autobiographical essay People and Propositions.
