Read in March, 2011

This book was a gift in more than one way. I was gradually taken into a space where I had not ventured for a time--a lacuna. I have not read fiction for a while; I have only briefly flirted with Mexican culture; my historical knowledge of the rise of the Soviet state is sketchy; and I was pleased with the choice of the giver who seems to have sensed what I might like.

The book gradually immersed me, night after night as I read a few pages, in a life that is rich in unusual circumstances. And whose life is not? And did what only a few can do with words, helped me see the world through the eyes of another. The Lacuna
