Red princess : a revolutionary life by Sofka Zinovieff ( Book )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Born in 1907 in St. Petersburg, Princess Sophy "Sofka" Dolgorouky was born into a world of privilege and nobility - ten short years later, Sofka's world would crumble when the Tsar and his family were overthrown, exiled, and executed. Burning with shame, Sofka and her family fled to England and then to Paris, where Sofka quickly embraced the bohemian culture of the 1920s and 1930s. During the Nazi occupation, Sofka would leave her first husband only to lose her second. Interned in a Nazi prison camp, she worked with the French Resistance and discovered communism, whose cause she would ironically continue to uphold for the rest of her life. But what was even more outrageous in its day than her conversion from princess to communist was Sofka's private life. She not only believed in sexual freedom, but often placed love, literature, and adventure before even her own children. Sofka was much more than a princess in exile - she was someone whose existence was constantly dislocated by revolution, yet nonetheless believed in revolution as a way of making the world a better place"--Jacket

At the same time, Nikita's English widow Maud - disturbed by her husband's strange behavior in the days before his death - starts to investigate his complicated past. She soon finds herself reigniting a bitter family feud, and discovers a heartbreaking story of a young mother caught up in the political tides of the Greek Civil War, forced to make a terrible decision that will blight not only her life but that of future generations" -- Cover verso

Athen, Paradiesstraße Roman by Sofka Zinovieff ( Book )

Athen, 2008: Nach seinem rätselhaften tödlichen Unfall wird der bekannte 62-jährige Journalist Nikitas Perifanis zu Grabe getragen. Am Rande der Trauergesellschaft hält sich eine alte Frau im Schatten der Bäume. Es ist Antigone, Nikitas' Mutter, die nach sechzigjährigem Exil aus Moskau zurückgekehrt ist. Doch warum begrüßt sie nicht einmal ihre Schwester, die sie seit Jahrzehnten nicht gesehen hat? Ihre Schwiegertochter Maud, die nichts von den familiären Verwerfungen weiß, vermutet einen Zusammenhang zwischen Nikitas' Tod und seinen jüngsten Recherchen. Sie sucht in seinem Büro nach Antworten und ahnt nicht, dass der Schlüssel zur Wahrheit im Familienhaus in der Paradiesstraße liegt. Die Wunden, die der griechische Bürgerkrieg hinterlassen hat, sind bis heute nicht verheilt. In ihrem berührenden Roman erzählt Sofka Zinovieff von Liebe und Verlust, von Familienbanden und Familienfehden - und von dem fatalen Riss, der nicht nur die griechische Gesellschaft spaltete, sondern auch mitten durch Familien hindurchgeht
