History: The Home Movie : Craig Raine ( Excellent pre-loved)
The Pasternaks are a family of writers, printers, musicians, whose attempts to work and survive under Stalin are chronicled. The Raines are professional boxers, psychotherapists and eccentrically English. Their varying fortunes are conveyed in three-line stanzas.
A genuine tour de force by one of Britain's foremost poets, this latter-day verse epic interweaves fact and fiction with inventive brilliance. At once a vivid history of Europe from 1905 to 1984, and a gripping saga of two families--one English, one Russian--this enormously entertaining narrative is sensual, powerful, and utterly original.
