ONE OF THE most discussed and elusive female characters in the Russian literary tradition, Pushkin's Tatiana Larina is the progenetrix of an impressive list of heroines ranging from Tolstoy's Anna Karenina to Pasternak's Lara Guishar in Doctor Zhivago. In this provocative new book, Olga Hasty offers the first study of Pushkin's novel-in-verse Eugene Onegin that focuses systematically on Tatiana. A major revisionist reading of one of the central texts of the Russian canon, Hasty's "Tatianacentric" approach to Eugene Onegin revitalizes our understanding of both Pushkin's heroine and the novel in which she appears. Hasty shows, with elegance and psychological insight, how Tatiana is able to realize her imaginative potential in a context full of real risk and constraint. Tatiana emerges as a new literary, psychological, and cultural model who enacts precisely those creative tensions and possibilities on which Pushkin himself drew. Pushkin's Tatiana recovers the erotic energy, self-control, and expressivity of Pushkin's most beloved heroine, freeing her from the cliched image of self-sacrificial woman. Hasty concludes with an insightful exploration of Tatiana's subsequent role in the self-presentations of the Russian poets Karolina Pavlova and Marina Tsvetaeva.

On vacation in Greece, Judith Kahn, a forty-five year old foundation executive from San Francisco, forms a friendship with Tatiana Starova, a foundation grantee from St. Petersburg, Russia. Staying at a converted windmill on an Aegean island, the two women become friends through sharing their life stories. Back in St. Petersburg, Tatiana discovers she is suffering from ovarian cancer. Judith puts together a group of women to help Tatiana -- Kay, Judith's dynamic boss; Gloria, an African-American family practitioner; and Carmen, a Hispanic oncologist. The women bring Tatiana to San Francisco and, with the help of a visiting Russian doctor, Stas Arnatov, shepherd her through treatment with an experimental drug. As each member of the group interacts with Tatiana, she begins, through Tatiana's guidance, to cope with her own life dilemma -- an unsatisfying romance and career; or a past break with family; or a daughter's anorexia; or a lonely personal life. In trying to heal Tatiana, the group members themselves are healed. Although Judith and Tatiana never return to Greece together, they return to the windmill in their hearts and find courage and peace as they face the end of Tatiana's life.

Tatiana is a unique story from the early 1800s brought into the 21st century by oral tradition. Tatiana recalls the genuine romance and fearful adventures of a young girl born in Cook Inlet during a season of cultural con ict, violence, greed, and extreme hardship. She was forced to choose between the simple desires of her Dena'ina Athabaskan mother and the adamant demands of an adoring yet intensely stubborn Russian father. Her decision changed history during that era and inspires this generation with rich cultural knowledge and values. “At that time of the world, every family was its own last resort. e innocent were forced to defend themselves, o en emerging less than innocent...if they emerged at all.”

Martin Cruz Smith's “masterful” (USA TODAY) and “irresistible” (People) New York Times bestseller and Washington Post notable book of the year: Arkady Renko must connect the dots among a Russian journalist’s mysterious death, corrupt politicians, murderous gangsters, and brazen bureaucrats. Arkady Renko, one of the iconic investigators of contemporary fiction, has survived the cultural journey from the Soviet Union to the New Russia, only to find the nation as obsessed with secrecy and brutality as was the old Communist dictatorship. In Tatiana, the melancholy hero unravels a mystery as complex and dangerous as modern Russia itself. The reporter Tatiana Petrovna falls to her death from a sixth-floor window in Moscow the same week that a mob billionaire is shot and buried with the trappings due a lord. The trail leads to Kaliningrad, a Cold War “secret city” that is separated by hundreds of miles from the rest of Russia. The more Arkady delves into Tatiana’s past, the more she leads him into a surreal world of wandering sand dunes, abandoned children, and a notebook written in the personal code of a dead translator. Finally, in a lethal race to uncover what the translator knew, Renko makes a startling discovery that draws him still deeper into Tatiana’s past—and, paradoxically, into Russia’s future, where bulletproof cars, poets, corruption of the Baltic Fleet, and a butcher for hire combine to give Kaliningrad the “distinction” of having the highest crime rate in Russia. More than a mystery, Tatiana is Martin Cruz Smith’s most ambitious and politically daring novel since Gorky Park. It is a story rich in character, black humor, and romance, with an insight that is the hallmark of a writer The New York Times has called “endlessly entertaining and deeply serious…[not merely] our best writer of suspense, but of one of our best writers, period.”
