Polonsky's book is an idiosyncratic history of Russia, a travelogue, and compendium of historical stories using the life of Molotov (she lived below his apartment in Moscow) as the jumping off point. She is also a bibliophile, with a fine sense of writing and the ability to make all of this a delightful, educating, and often depressing (and funny) read.
