    1. A scholarly romantic, Lesley Blanch influenced and inspired generations of writers, readers and critics Her first book, The Wilder Shores of Love the stories of four ninteenth century women who followed the beckoning Eastern star pioneered a new kind of group biography focusing on women escaping the boredom of convention An instant classic, it has remained in print in English since first publication in 1954 Lesley Blanch was ahead of her time and prescient in the way she attempted to bridge West and East.Savvy, self possessed and talented, Blanch did what she wanted and earned a good living at a time when women were expected to stay at home and be subservient to the needs of husband and children She was glamorous and stylish and, in her own unique way, distinctly powerful.She knew something of the Middle East as it once was, before conflict and turmoil became the essence of relations between the Arab World and the West The places she travelled to and which obsessed her are still newsworthy today Russia, The Balkans, The Middle East, Turkey, Afghanistan.

    2. Published in the 60s, an autobiographical account of a young girl’s actual and metaphorical seduction by old, vanished Russia and her subsequent lifelong obsession with rediscovering it via the Trans-Siberian express. This isn’t a book I would normally try, but after an inconsequential conversation, an acquaintance somewhat inexplicably lent it to me, so I felt obliged. It’s evocative, strange and potentially fascinating to anyone (not me) who is versed in Russian history. Despite droll se [...]

    3. This book was a travel narrative/love story/biography by an interesting women I saw profiled in the Sunday Times. She died in 2007 at almost 103! In this book, she tells of her romance with both Russia and a mysterious Russian, whose memory she pursues across Europe and Russia on the Trans-Siberian railroad. A very atmospheric and detailed adventure.

    4. This book is all about Russian history and Siberia and was published in 1968. If you are interested in Russia you will really like this book. Caviare and vodka! I liked this book but some of the writing about Russia was a bit overdone at times.

    5. I sent this book to a friend so I no longer have it on my boook shelf.It's a romance beyond romance and for years I searched for a dfferent ending.

    6. Lived life by her own rules. Unabashedly romantic and not a little rose tinted, the Russia she craves is more from imagination than history. That said, she does as she grows up, become more of an expert, and her thoughts and memories weave in and out of the country´s history. Tough going at times, but she writes with spark and life.
