Book Review: Svetlana Alliluyeva'nin Mektuplari

Title: Svetlana Alliluyeva'nin Mektuplari
Writer: Svetlana Alliluyeva
Year: 1988
Pages: 240

I guess this book is a Turkish translation of 'Twenty Letters to a Friend'.
It is letters of Svetlana Alliluyeva,Stalin's daugher to an unknown person.She gives her own view on the events of those days,her father Stalin,his relationships with other people,those days of USSR. There are many names in the book that I did not know,from the notes section I learnt that they were in the importants posts of soviet union.Those parts were boring. She tells about her mother Nadejda Alliluyeva. It was shocking for me to read that Svetlana learnt about her mother's way of death(suicide) from Life Magazine!

How I bought this book also has an interesting story,I found the book at gittigidiyor with 1 YTR price,ordered it, the postal fee was 6YTL :)
