Descripción de editorial
Written by Lenin’s wife and life companion, Nadezhda K. Krupskaya, and translated by Eric Verney from the second Russian edition published at Moscow, 1930, this is Part I of an intimate account of the life of Lenin and his wife, covering the years 1893-1907.
Although ostensibly written as memoirs of Krupskaya herself, by reason of her close connection with Lenin, the book is mainly about him, and is widely regarded as the only written account that gives a true picture of Lenin the individual. Richly illustrated throughout with pictures of prominent revolutionaries, the book reveals (perhaps in spite of herself) the modest, devoted, yet independent nature of Krupskaya.
The book is not merely the memoirs of the wife of Lenin, but of his colleague and co-worker, who was much more than a mere reflection of her more famous partner.
