At His Side: The Last Years of Isaac Babel

At His Side: The Last Years of Isaac Babel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the Writer Isaac Babel was arrested by Stalin's secret police in May of 1939, he said to A. N. Pirozhkova, his wife of seven years, "They didn't let me finish". Babel was perhaps the greatest writer to come out of the Soviet Union. In At His Side, A. N. Pirozhkova writes of their time together and of the anxious years following his arrest as she sought to learn of his terrible fate. "Babel lives in his wife's lucid yet adoring prose. We are with her, at his side" (The New York Times Book Review). "This glimpse into Babel's last few years on earth, written by the person closest to him, will be a treasured possession" (New York Times). At His Side was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
