Text: English, Russian (translation)From Library Journal:
The author has become almost as well known as her husband, Andrei Sakharov. In her memoir she relates "what has happened in the last three years" to the two of them. The book is mostly about Bonner. It tells of her trials at the hands of the KGB (she must be one of the very few Soviet citizens to have compelled the prosecutor to apologize), her illnesses, her travels in the West, and her rock-like solidarity with Sakharov. Her narrative seems to be based on a series of random and hurried jottings and is by no means easy to follow. Still, her story testifies to an enduring Soviet reality as yet far more powerful than Gorbachev's call for openness: the omnipotent state determined to rein in the independent mind. R.H.
