Abstract:

"Thomas Gaiton Marullo re-creates the struggle of the writer and of the emigre Russian artistic community in Europe to keep alive the memory of "patriarchal" Russia against a backdrop of personal suffering, poverty, war, and longing for the homeland.".

"In his late years, still living in self-imposed exile from the Soviet Union, Bunin sought only to think and write in undisturbed peace. He had won the Nobel Prize and received more accolades than he had ever experienced; now he wished only to divide his time between Paris and his country home in Grasse. But the onset of war in Europe enmeshed Bunin in the tumult and chaos that had marked his first sixty years. Coupled with this disarray were the formidable pressures of his compatriots in "Russia Abroad," the community of exiles who now demanded that he represent the best attributes of "patriarchal" Russia, in his personal deportment as well as his literary activities. A Nobel laureate, he was now also a man-god to his emigre community.".

"Mr. Marullo draws from letters, diaries, and memoirs to compose a picture of Bunin amidst these times, induding his continued hatred for Soviet leaders as well as for the rising aggression of fascist Germany."--BOOK JACKET.
