WRitten in 1963 and published in 1967 after she had defected to the west,, 20 Letters to a Friend was written by Stalin's youngest daughter. Structured as a series of letters to a “friend”—Svetlana refused to
identify him, but we now know it was her close friend, Fyodor Volkenstein—this is
a memoir of her father. After opening with Stalin’s death, Svetlana returns to
her childhood. Each letter adds a new strand to her remarkable story; some are
wistful—romanticized recollections of her early years and her family—while
others are desperate exorcisms of the tragedies that plagued her, such as her
mother’s suicide and her father’s increasing cruelty.At the time of its publication, it created a sensation, but 50 years on, the world knows Stalin for the tyrant he was.
