From Library Journal
Through this selection of published but previously untranslated 19th-century autobiographies (full and excerpted), Clyman (Russian, SUNY), editor of A Chekhov Companion (Greenwood, 1985) and editor and translator Vowles (who also edited Sexuality and the Body in Russian Culture, Stanford Univ., 1993) provide readers with a glimpse of the lives of Russian women in different social classes. Autobiographies of Russian women translated into English are rare. Of the 11 women represented here, seven are of the gentry class (primarily writers and journalists) and four are from classes (e.g., merchant) less likely to document their lives. The editors provide an excellent introduction to the history of Russian autobiography and include a bibliography of other autobiographies. This excellent work is a nice companion to Five Sisters: Women Against the Tsar (Allen & Unwin, 1987. o.p.). Recommended for academic and large public libraries with strong women's or Russian studies collections.?Jenny Lynn Presnell, Miami Univ. Libs., Oxford, Ohio
