Boris Pasternak: Family Correspondence, 1921–1960

In The Russian Review, Christopher J. Barnes, from the University of Toronto, reviewed Boris Pasternak: Family Correspondence, 1921–1960. Barnes highlights the “strong sense of the family nature of their messages” and the “common interests, concerns, and a unique spiritual kinship that overrode long years of separation.” He applauds the “splendid translation” of Boris’s nephew, Nicolas Pasternak Slater, especially the ability to reproduce “the angular argument, waywardness, and unusual expression in many of Boris’s letters.” Click here to see the review.
