Boris Pasternak Book and Novel

Boris Pasternak - Author


Boris Pasternak was born in Moscow in 1890 and after briefly training as a composer resolved to be a writer. He published a large number of collections of poetry, written under the burden of Soviet Russia's stringent censorship, before publishing his most famous work, Doctor Zhivago, in 1958. This novel won him the Nobel Prize for Literature but the USSR's hostility to the West meant he was forced to turn it down. He died in 1960.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
