My Half Century, Paperback / softback Book

My Half Century Paperback / softback


This collection includes Akhmatova's letters, essays on Pushkin, diatribes against the Stalinist establishment, rousing wartime broadcasts, and encounters with fellow poets.

Here, through her deceptively simple style, the elusive writer conveys the closest thing to a self-portrait she ever allowed herself.
