The Bronze Horseman

Производитель: "HarperCollins"

Two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha, share the same bed, living in one room with their brother and parents. Then the routine of their hard impoverished life is shattered on 22 June 1941 when Hitler invades Russia. For the Metanov family, for Leningrad and particularly for Tatiana, life will never be the same again. On that fateful day, Tatiana meets a brash young man named Alexander. The family suffers as Hitler's army advances on Leningrad, and the Russian winter closes in. With bombs falling and the city under siege, Tatiana and Alexander are drawn inexorably to each other, but theirs is a love that could tear Tatiana's family apart, and at its heart lies a secret that could mean death to anyone who hears it. Confronted on the one hand by Hitler's vast war machine, and on the other by a Soviet system determined to crush the human spirit, Tatiana and Alexander are pitted against the very tide of history, at a turning point in the century that made the modern world. ...

Paullina Simons

Paullina Simons (born 1963 in Leningrad, USSR) is the international best-selling author of the novels "Tully", "Red Leaves", "Eleven Hours", "The Bronze Horseman", "Tatiana and Alexander", "The Girl In Times Square" and "The Summer Garden".

Background

Simons dreamed of becoming a writer as a child in Leningrad. At the age of ten, she moved with her family to the United States, and completed an early attempt at writing when she was 12, in English. [ [http://www.likesbooks.com/paullinasimons.html Paullina Simons Interview on All about Romance, 2002] accessed July 8, 2008]

Simons attended colleges in New York, Kansas and England, graduating from Kansas University with a degree in political science. She worked as a financial journalist on the Financial News Network, and translator among other various jobs before "Tully", her first novel, was written and released.

Simons and her second husband Kevin Ryan live in Long Island, New York and have four children. From oldest to youngest they are Natasha, Misha, Kevin Jr., and Tatiana (named after the heroine in "The Bronze Horseman)."

Books

Although her most well known book is "The Bronze Horseman", many of Paullina's novels have reached international bestseller lists in countries including Australia and New Zealand. All of her books have been published with Flamingo or Harper Collins.

Tully

Tully has been described as "the epic tale of a girl from the wrong side of the tracks and her emergence into womanhood". [ [http://www.harpercollins.com.au/author/authorExtra.aspx?authorID=50000535&displayType=interview HarperCollins Interview with Paullina Simon] accessed July 8, 2008]

Simons' latest novel, published in 2007.

Tatiana's Table

A collection of recipes for meals mentioned in The Bronze Horseman, The Bridge To Holy Cross/Tatiana and Alexander, and The Summer Garden, was published in 2007. According to Simons: "I was looking to make it funny and light and cute, and am still trying to, but of course, my melancholy Russian soul is getting the better of me as I remember what Tatiana and Alexander had, what they lost, what they sacrificed for each other, what it took them to get back to the metaphoric Lazarevo (which in itself was a metaphor), and suddenly I’m feeling slightly less chipper. The blockade of Leningrad in 1941 is presenting particular problems as I write with abundance about cheese and milk and butter and flour and beef tenderloin and preheating ovens and buttering casserole dishes. I keep thinking of Tatiana smelling the empty bag that once contained oatmeal when there was no electricity and no heat, no coal or wood, or water on the third floor."
