Anna Pasternak (acclaimed author, journalist and columnist)

On the 60th anniversary of the publication of Doctor Zhivago, Boris Pasternak’s great niece, Anna Pasternak, tells the true story behind the publication of Doctor Zhivago. Pasternak’s iconic love story, set against the backdrop of the Russian Revolution, won him the Nobel Prize for literature, became a weapon the Cold War and was banned in Russia for over thirty years. The true story is as much a thrilling literary espionage, as a chronicle of a publishing sensation.
