Information
First edition first print hardback of LARA: (The Untold Love Story That Inspired Doctor Zhivago) by Anna Pasternak and published by William Collins Ltd in 2016. Signed to a previous owner and dated by Pasternak on the title page. Numberline is a single digit '1'.

The book is in very good condition (black cloth boards with white lettering to spine) with light bumping to the top and bottom edges of the spine and slight tanning to the top and front page edges. The book is in a very good unclipped dust jacket which has light curling and creasing to edges. Internally the pages are otherwise clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

‘Doctor Zhivago’ has sold in its millions yet the true love story that inspired it has never been fully explored. Pasternak would often say ‘Lara exists, go and meet her’, directing his visitors to the love of his life and literary muse, Olga Ivinskaya. They met in 1946 at the literary journal where she worked. Their relationship would last for the remainder of their lives.

Olga paid an enormous price for loving ‘her Boria’. She became a pawn in a highly political game and was imprisoned twice in Siberian labour camps because of her association with him and his controversial work. Her story is one of unimaginable courage, loyalty, suffering, tragedy, drama and loss.

Drawing on both archival and family sources, Anna Pasternak’s book reveals for the first time the critical role played by Olga in Boris’s life and argues that without Olga it is likely that Doctor Zhivago would never have been completed or published.
