Daphne Kalotay s novel RUSSIAN WINTER is a masterfully crafted novel of loss and redemption set in an unusual historical time period and interweaving two connected stories In present day Boston famous Russian ballerina Nina Revskaya who defected from the Soviet Union at the height of her fame is preparing to auction off her dazzling jewelry collection including three beautiful amber pieces set in gold Nina is now a recluse crippled by arthritis and the weight of her mysterious past a past that could be revealed by an ambitious young representative of the auction house who begins to investigate the provenance of the amber jewelry spurred in part by the donation of an apparently matching necklace from a grieving widower The widower Gregori is the academic translator of poetry by Nina s husband the famed Viktor Elsin one of the many who disappeared during Stalin s terrifying regimeIn taut elegant prose Ms Kalotay conjures the life which Nina is now forced to recall her precipitous rise to celebrity within the Bolshoi dance company her lifelong but difficult friendship with a fellow ballerina the haunting Vera and her headlong plunge into romantic entanglement with handsome debonair Viktor who introduces Nina to a literati circle slowly and relentlessly threatened by Stalinist mandates The novel shines at its brightest in those pages where we see Nina s ascent to prima ballerina driven by her innate perfectionism and myopic dedication to her dance even as the world she thinks she knows crumbles apart to reveal a sordid underside of fear compliance and mysterious deportations to dreaded gulags Nina s narcissism is cleverly played against her growing awareness that her own delusions have ensnared her yet she cannot face the truth until it is too late Freuent switches in the narrative to the academic Gregori and his hunt for clues to his own past embodied by the necklace left to him by his adoptive parents are eually well drawn if somewhat less compelling It doesn t reuire much deduction on the part of the reader to ascertain the secret that awaits Gregori but his journey is well written and interesting as he strives to discover who he isNevertheless it is Nina s story which most captivates for it is the universal struggle of artists living under oppression everywhere of innocence beguiled by duty and of sacrifices made for art that can in time return to assert their toll The contrast offered in the novel between Nina s cantankerous older self and the naive ingenue of the Bolshoi who dances her way into tragedy is wonderfully played out as are descriptions of the grey hued existence endured under StalinHighly recommended for lovers of historical fiction and for those of us who to this day remain entranced by the rigors and ethereal beauty of ballet
