Description
In the winter of 1948, Lina Prokofiev—the wife of composer Sergei Prokofiev—was alone in her Moscow apartment one night when the telephone rang. The caller insisted that she come downstairs to collect a parcel, but when she reached the courtyard she was arrested; she spent the next nine months under interrogation, and the following five years in a Soviet gulag. Here the author of The People's Artist—a defining account of the composer's career after his fateful return to the Soviet Union in 1936—follows the life and fortunes of the wife Prokofiev left behind. Lina emerges as a remarkable and indefatigable spirit, devoted to the brilliant artist she met and married in Brooklyn.

"Morrison tells a good story, without excess or indulgence, and with touching empathy for his heroine."—Guardian (London)
