20th-century Russian history comes to life through six generations of a family in their Moscow apartment
Shortlisted for the UKLA Book Awards 2021 |
The Apartment: A Century of Russian History explains the true history of 20th-century Russia through the fictitious story of a Moscow family and their apartment.
The Muromtsev family have been living in the same apartment for more than a century, generation after generation. Readers are taken through different rooms and witness how each generation actually lived alongside the larger social and political changes that Russia experienced.
A search-and-find element has readers looking for objects from page to page to see which items were passed down through the generations. Beautifully illustrated with minute details, this book helps readers engage with Russia's history in an all new way.
The book includes a timeline, glossary, bibliography, and index.
Striking view into Russian history. . . This illustrated 'living museum' allows readers to glimpse ordinary lives through some not-so-ordinary times. -- Publishers Weekly
