ADVANCE PRAISE FOR
STALIN’S DAUGHTER

“Compassionate and compelling, Sullivan sensitively delivers the intimate, tragic life story of a woman who was Stalin’s only daughter in all its strangeness: from her mother’s suicide in the Kremlin to her defection and her love affairs; from Oxford, England, and Princeton, New Jersey, to impoverished death in Wisconsin—always haunted by Stalin. This is not a political story but a quest for love in the heart of darkness.”

—SIMON SEBAG MONTEFIORE, bestselling author of
Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar

“A biography of haunting fascination portrays its subject as a pawn of historical circumstance who tried valiantly to create her own life…. With great compassion, Sullivan reveals how both sides played [Svetlana] for their own purposes, yet she was a writer first and foremost, a passionate Russian soul who wanted a human connection yet could not quite find the way into the Western heart. The author manages suspense and intrigue at every turn.”

—Kirkus Reviews
(starred review)

“Stalin’s only daughter lived an almost impossible life at the edges of 20th-century history…. Sullivan masterfully employs interviews, Alliluyeva’s own letters, and the contents of CIA, KGB, and Soviet archives to stitch together a coherent narrative of her fractured life…. A head-spinning journey as Alliluyeva attempts to escape her father’s shadow without ever fully comprehending the man who cast it.”

—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
