“A rich story of a cultivated elite bound to a disintegrating autocracy.” ?Walter Goodman, The New York Times

“A vivid, fascinating account by a gifted writer who sweeps back the curtain from the past, revealing it full of color and life.” ?New York Times
“Spellbinding...a family history, focusing on the author's grandparents who fled with their young sons from the Russian Revolution . . . But this is more than a family memoir. It's a meditation on rootlessness and belonging, and on the ambivalent feelings we all have about the lost past and about our forbears. Not to be missed.” ?Victoria Glendinning, Vogue
“An exemplary Russian performance.” ?Bruce Chatwin
“The Russian Album is a work of such evocative power that the story of one family will speak volumes to many.” ?Maclean's
“The Russian Album is a joy to read. Every sentence seems heartfelt. And the book as a whole is likely to captivate all who are interested in the question of roots.” ?Cleveland Plain Dealer
“This beautifully written book . . . is about tenderness, courage, and a sublime life-force.” ?The Observer (London)
