Summary
  • "David MacFadyen traces the careers of early 20th century Russian singers such as Izabella Iur'eva, Tamara Tsereteli, and others who struggled to continue to perform as they fled the dangers of a Soviet society that had little patience for cafe-culture. MacFadyen follows their trail through Eastern Europe to Paris and London, then across to New York and San Francisco, and back into Russia through the smoky, emigre bars of colourful Chinese towns. He pays particular attention to the notion of "mass" songs inside the Soviet Union and explores the relationship of official and public approval
  • By looking at how these performers used success at home and abroad to become recording and film stars, and eventually television personalities, MacFadyen avoids the conventional dichotomies about the Eastern Block to show the complexity of Soviet culture."--Jacket
