About this product
- DescriptionA New York Times Notable Book of 2007 A tremendous achievement. --The Sunday Times (London)The Whisperers is a triumphant act of recovery. In this powerful work of history, Orlando Figes chronicles the private history of family life during the violent and repressive reign of Josef Stalin. Drawing on a vast collection of interviews and archives, The Whisperers re-creates the anguish of family members turned against one ather--of the paraia, alienation, and treachery that poisoned private life in Russia for generations. A paramic portrait of a society in which everyone spoke in whispers, The Whisperers is rigorously compassionate. . . . A humbling monument to the evil and endurance of Russia's Soviet past and, implicitly, a guide to its present (The Ecomist).
