An enchanting marvel that reacquaints our technologically sophisticated but verbally deficient world with the power of the epistle to sustain love in the most trying of circumstances...A gem of a book. "The Boston Globe" Timely and important...What gives Just Send Me Word its power is the intimate, granular detail of Gulag life, of how men and women attempted to create a semblance of normality in the most abnormal of circumstances. "The Daily Beast" A heroic, absolutely astounding love story. "Minneapolis Star-Tribune" Wonderful...Just Send Me Word blends Gulag and sentiment in its loftiest application into a "you- can't- put- it- down" book and Orlando Figes, a modern master of Russian cultural history, brings off a worthy successor to Natasha's Dance. "Washington Independent Review of Books" A remarkable love story intertwined with a rare glimpse into a harsh chapter of Soviet history. "Christian Science Monitor" Drawing on more than 1,200 letters between Lev and Svetlana "Sveta" Mishchenko, and interviews with the couple, veteran historian Figes tells a remarkable tale of love and devotion during the worst years of the USSR...His fine narrative pacing enhances this moving, memorable story. "Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)" A heart-rending record of extraordinary human endurance. "Kirkus Reviews" A book to astonish readers: never before has Stalin's Gulag been the setting for a love affair. This powerful narrative by a distinguished historian will take its place not just in history but in literature. "Robert K. Massie, author of Catherine the Great" Orlando Figes, a serious scholar who can reach wide general audiences, has done it again...An engaging portrait of a revealing and intimate relationship within almost unimaginable conditions. "History Book Club""
