The planet was spinning on its relentless orbit, the stars in the universe were in permanent motion, they had vodka and port and white wine and roast goose, there was mustard sauce for the herring and store-bought ham, and they were seeing in , just as they had seen in , and would see in and 36 and 37 and many more years to come.
They were young, with no thought of death or old age; they had been born for life and youth and joy. I enrolled in a class called Soviet Political Systems and our instructor told us in the first class that we would not be using the textbook normally assigned but would instead simply keep up with events as they happened.
This was during the period of Perestroika and of Glasnost, and the word watched as Mikhail Gorbachev guided the Soviet ship of state into its final mooring and ushered in the end of that great decades long political experiment. Our professor was considered an expert on communism and had traveled extensively in Eastern Europe and was a wealth of knowledge.
He talked about a book that had just been published called Children of the Arbat and how it painstakingly described life in the s Stalinist era. I always kept an idea that I would someday read the book and almost 30 years later I have. Following the arrest and exile of a loyal communist, we see how intrigue and party politics transformed the ideological revolution into an arena of personal power plays.
This book also breathes life into this era, as we understand that a neighborhood that had once been known for its artistic and humanistic personality is altered in the socialist state.
Ultimately this is a book about life in the Soviet Union but more so about life in general and about human nature. An excellent portrayal of an important and often misunderstood time and place.
