9780099581345: The Zhivago Affair: The Kremlin, the CIA, and the Battle over a Forbidden Book
Review:

"A galloping page-turner and a stark picture of a nation ruled by terror and unreason, which reads like a sinister rewrite of Alice in Wonderland" (John Carey Sunday Times)

"Packed with fascinating detail … vibrant authenticity and calm analysis" (Claire Morrall Independent on Sunday)

"Fascinating… [Finn and Couvée] manage to shed new light on both the period and the characters involved" (Virginia Rounding Financial Times)

"A compelling, seductively written tale of Cold War censorship and paranoia" (Kate Williams Independent)

"Excellent, superbly researched, and as exciting in its way as any Cold War thriller. Pasternak himself emerges clearly and strongly in all his complexity. This was the most important literary controversy of the post-war world, and Finn and Couvée have presented it with immense care and colour. The aftermath of the affair still has resonance even now" (John Simpson)

From the Publisher:

The story of a forbidden book that became a symbol of freedom and rebellion in the battle between East and West.

1956. Boris Pasternak presses a manuscript into the hands of an Italian publishing scout with these words: ‘This is Doctor Zhivago. May it make its way around the world.’ Pasternak knew his novel would never be published in the Soviet Union as the authorities regarded it as seditious, so, instead, he allowed it to be published in translation all over the world - a highly dangerous act.

1958. The life of this extraordinary book enters the realms of the spy novel. The CIA, recognising that the Cold War was primarily an ideological battle, published Doctor Zhivago in Russian and smuggled it into the Soviet Union. It was immediately snapped up on the black market. Pasternak was later forced to renounce the Nobel Prize in Literature, igniting worldwide political scandal.

With first access to previously classified CIA files, The Zhivago Affair gives an irresistible portrait of Pasternak, and takes us deep into the Cold War, back to a time when literature had the power to shake the world.

A Spectator and Sunday Times Book of the Year
