Annotation: Mura’s Love is a novel about forbidden love between two women during one of the darkest and most tragic periods in Russian history — the 1930s and 1940s. The narrative is suff used with vivid details of Soviet daily life at the height of Stalinist socialism. This whole strange story begins in the Crimea, in one of the sanatoriums of the resort of Miskhor, when a Kievan woman named Mura meets Ksyusha from Moscow... Nikolai Baitov’s work is one of the best and brightest examples of an epistolary novel and continues a tradition in world literature dating from the 18th and 19th centuries, referencing books by Rousseau, Choderlos de Laclos, Goethe and Dostoyevsky.
