Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE-----FROM LENIN TO LENNON: A MEMOIR OF RUSSIA IN THE SIXTIES by David Gurevich. As a youth, Gurevich idolized Bob Dylan, breathed rock 'n' roll, read trash thrillers and identified with Holden Caulfield of CATCHER IN THE RYE . A typical American adolescence? No, a Russian adolescence, described with caustic wit and rare insight in this engrossing, wryly funny autobiographical memoir of growing up absurd, Soviet-style. Gurevich,whose roots are Ukrainian-Jewish, attended Young Pioneer summer camps and learned to mistrust his neighbors. After college in Moscow he eked out a living as a translator. His emigration to the U.S. in 1976 was complicated by an immature early marriage, painful divorce and having to leave behind an infant son. His return visit to the U.S.S.R. in 1989 throws sharp light on a country going down the tubes.'' The book is juicily quotable. Of Lenin, Gurevich writes: His intentions were never that benevolent, even on paper.'' Of KGB snoops: They were as lazy and incompetent as any other Soviet bureaucrats.'' You are bidding on the stated HBJ First Edition from 1991. Other than a clipped back cardholder flyleaf (ex libris), both the mylar-covered DJ and the book are in positively minty-mint condition. There are no rips, tears, etc.--and the pages and binding are tight as a drum (they still crackle) (see photo). Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. . Paypal is an acceptable alternative. I will ship internationally for additional charges. OPENING BID IS W-A-Y BELOW COVER PRICE!!! So bid soon and often for this magnificent, impossible-to-find AUTOBIOGRAPHY COLLECTIBLE. WANT TO SEE MORE? COME VISIT MY STORE!! CLICK HERE---
