Sinossi

The never-before-told story of the journey behind THE BRONZE HORSEMAN From the author of the celebrated, internationally bestselling Bronze Horseman saga comes a glimpse into the private life of its much loved creator, and the real story behind the epic novels. Paullina Simons gives us a work of non-fiction as captivating and heart-wrenching as the lives of tatiana and Alexander. Only a few chapters into writing her first story set in Russia, her mother country, Paullina Simons travelled to Leningrad (now St Petersburg) with her beloved Papa. What began as a research trip turned into six days that forever changed her life, the course of her family, and the novel that became tHE BRONZE HORSEMAN. After a quarter-century away from her native land, Paullina and her father found a world trapped in yesteryear, with crumbling stucco buildings, entire families living in seven-square-meter communal apartments, and barren fields bombed so badly that nothing would grow there even fifty years later. And yet there were the spectacular white nights, the warm hospitality of family friends and, of course, the pelmeni and caviar. At times poignant, at times inspiring and funny, this is both a fascinating glimpse into the inspiration behind the epic saga, and a touching story of a family's history, a father and a daughter, and the fate of a nation.

L'autore

Paullina Simons is the author of TULLY and THE BRONZE HORSEMAN, as well as ten other beloved novels, a memoir, a cookbook and two childrens books. Born in Leningrad, Paullina immigrated to the United States when she was ten, and now lives in New York with her husband and an alarming number of her once-independent children.

Paullina is my favorite author of all time. It is best to know and appreciate her previous work, especially The Bronze Horseman when taking in this memoir. I just feel like you will understand it better, you will feel a stronger emotion when reading 6 days in Leningrad. The journey she takes you on is filled with sorrow and happiness, it will get you thinking about the luxuries we take for granted. I could grasp the emotion she felt while on her trip there as if I had been walking the streets with her. I may be biased because of my deep love for the Bronze Horseman but I can understand now how she could have written it so passionately.
4.0 su 5 stelle Review of six Days in Leningrad in relation to the author of both The Bronze Horsemand and Tatiana and Alexander 14 aprile 2014

i READ SEVERAL BOOKS WRITTEN BY THIS AUTHOR INCLUDING THE BRONZE HORSEMAN AND TATIANA AND ALEXANDER. BOTH BOOK WERE EXCEPTIONALLY WELL WRITTEN. I WAS CAPTIVATED BY BOTH! THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHARACTERS MADE THEM SO VERY BELIEVABLE. THE PLOT IN BOTH BOOKS WERE EXEMPLARY AND THE DETAILING OF EVENTS KEPT ME ON THE EDGE AND MAKING IT DIFFICULT NOT TO READ WELL INTO THE NIGHT. WHEN I LEARNED ABOUT 'THE SIX DAYS IN LENINGRAD' I KNEW I HAD TO READ IT. WHILE BEING A JOURNEY BACK TO THEIR ROOTS IN RUSSIA, THE BOOK ALSO PROVIDED INSIGHTS INTO PLACES AND EVENTS THAT WERE SO POIGNANTLY PORTRAYED IN

THIS BOOK WAS A GREAT ADDITION TO MY UNDERSTANDING OF BOTH THE BRONZE HORSEMAN AND TATIANA AND ALEXANDER . I WAS FASCINATED WITH BOTH BOOKS! SIX DAYS IN LENINGRAD PROVIDED THE REAL LIFE EXPERIENTIAL BACKGROUND THAT PROVIDED ME WITH A NEW APPRECIATION OF THE PLOT AND CHARACTERS IN BOTH PREVIOUSLY CITED BOOKS. THEY WERE RIVETING!. ALTHOUGH THEY WERE FICTIONAL NOVELS, THE CHARACTERS JUMPED OFF THE PAGES. SIX DAYS IN LENINGRAD PROVIDED A BACKDROP FROM WHICH ONE COULD ACTUALLY VISUALIZE THE PLACES, PEOPLE AND EVENTS SO WELL DESCRIBED IN BOTH THE BRONZE HORSEMAN AND TATIANA AND ALEXANDER.

Having waxed Lyrical about the 'Horseman' series, I can only say, read my review, It was so good to hear Paulina's reflections about her beloved Leningrad. An eye opener but not unusual for any big city during WW2, I stress the conditions in a big city, I was brought up at the start of WW2, even though we had rationing and other hard situations, living in tenement's with one toilet between 3 families, we didn't know we were deprived, we were kids and got on with it, we had loving parents so nothing else mattered. It's disgusting that our Governments still strain at the leash to join other wars, will we ever learn from history that war solves nothing.

This is a fantastic read. I read this after reading The Bronze Horseman Trilogy. Everything makes much more sense now. I have traveled to Russia and many places in the world that aren't necessarily comfortable to visit. I could relate to the author's difficult adjustment when she returned to the States. I know the feeling of culture shock one experiences upon arriving home. Russia is a complicated place with a history like no other. I recall having many of the same impressions that Paullina had on her trip. It's all so unusual. The story of her family and her connection to Russia was very interesting and powerful. I highly recommended this book to anyone who interested in the former Soviet Union, or who plans on reading The Bronze Horseman Trilogy.

I could not put this book down!! I had already read Paullina Simon's trilogy, which I absolutely loved. It was so obviously an emotional experience for her to visit the city where she was born, in a country so devastated by its past yet so vibrant looking through the eyes of her childhood memories. This book was the perfect ending to Paullina's trilogy...you could just see how she developed the plot and the characters and the settings which were so vividly depicted. Just beautifully written, often funny and heartbreaking at the same time!!
