The Zalomov Family: Recollections and Documents by Pyotr Zalomov
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The author's of this book are members of a Russian worker's family - the Zalomov family. This family became famous a long time ago, when two of its members, Anna Kirillovna Zalomova and her son Pyotr Andreyevich Zalomov, served as the prototypes for the main characters in Maxim Gorky's novel Mother. From his own personal knowledge of them Gorky embodied them in Pelagea Nilovna and her son Pavel Vlassov. The main part of the book contains the "Recollections" of Pyotr Zalomov and materials in the "Appendix" refer to him too. The recollections of Zalomov's life are supplemented by the narrative of his youngest sister, and by letters and other materials included in this book. The story of Pyotr Zalomov is of great value as an independent work. Before us is the history of a class-conscious Russian worker at the end of the last century and the beginning of the present one; the story of a passionate search for a full and purposeful life.
