MEDIA REVIEWS

"Beautifully written and highly readable, this is an outstanding work by an admirable woman"

"--Library Journal."

"The bitterly ironic note is our recollection, as we read Mrs. Skrjabina's diary, of the glossy and heroic version sponsored by the Communist Party ever since the 1940s in publishing and broadcasting its 'history' of the siege...(this corrective, brief yet enormously effective (tells) us what actually happened in World War II on the banks of the Neva."

--Albert Parry, "Russian Review."
