520    A painstakingly researched, revelatory portrait of the 
       Soviet dictator's daughter traces her formative years in 
       the Kremlin, the losses of numerous loved ones and her 
       controversial defection to the United States. 
520 2  "The award-winning author of Villa Air-Bel returns with a 
       painstakingly researched, revelatory biography of Svetlana
       Stalin, a woman fated to live her life in the shadow of 
       one of history's most monstrous dictators--her father, 
       Josef Stalin. Born in the early years of the Soviet Union,
       Svetlana Stalin spent her youth inside the walls of the 
       Kremlin. Communist Party privilege protected her from the 
       mass starvation and purges that haunted Russia, but she 
       did not escape tragedy--the loss of everyone she loved, 
       including her mother, two brothers, aunts and uncles, and 
       a lover twice her age, deliberately exiled to Siberia by 
       her father. As she gradually learned about the extent of 
       her father's brutality after his death, Svetlana could no 
       longer keep quiet and in 1967 shocked the world by 
       defecting to the United States--leaving her two children 
       behind. But although she was never a part of her father's 
       regime, she could not escape his legacy. Her life in 
       America was fractured; she moved frequently, married 
       disastrously, shunned other Russian exiles, and ultimately
       died in poverty in Spring Green, Wisconsin. With access to
       KGB, CIA, and Soviet government archives, as well as the 
       close cooperation of Svetlana's daughter, Rosemary 
       Sullivan pieces together Svetlana's incredible life in a 
       masterful account of unprecedented intimacy. Epic in scope,
       it's a revolutionary biography of a woman doomed to be a 
       political prisoner of her father's name. Sullivan explores
       a complicated character in her broader context without 
       ever losing sight of her powerfully human story, in the 
       process opening a closed, brutal world that continues to 
       fascinate us. Illustrated with photographs"--|cProvided by
