it was ok
bookshelves: read07, location-russia
Read in September, 2007

This was on the new book shelf at the public library and I picked it up solely because of the title. It ended up being about a former educator during the long Communist years in Russia who was recruited to work in an archive that systematically was incinerating books and unpublished writing during the years where people disappeared for going against the system. Fairly interesting, and sad. And I noticed that they manage to have tea even when they don't have more than a few leaves (maybe only a tea freak such as myself would notice this).
