Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Sofia Petrovna, Lydia Chukovskaya, translated from Russian by Aline Werth, 1965, Russia, NOVEL

"...But as Sofia Petrovna stands in line after line—attempting to gain information, pass along money, plead for her son—she slowly loses her innocence and sanity. Sofia Petrovna is not Lydia Chukovskaya, but the emotional background for her story came from the experiences of the author, whose husband was arrested and murdered during one of Stalin's purges..."

(E.B., p. 281)
