The Pasternak Papers

BBC Radio

“ ‘The fighting lasted many days. Bedlam surrounded us. Then, suddenly everything stopped. A terrifying silence fell.’ Alexander Pasternak, younger brother of the poet, Boris, was brought up in a cultured Moscow household at the turn of the century, where artists such as Tolstoy, Rachmaninov and Scriabin were regular visitors. Ann Pasternak Slater, his niece, tells the story of the break up of society, and of the Pasternak family, in a feature based on Alexander’s memoirs.”
