Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
At the height of the Cold War, two secretaries are pulled out of the typing pool at the CIA and given the assignment of a lifetime. Their mission: to smuggle "Doctor Zhivago" out of the USSR, where no one dares publish it, and help Pasternak's magnum opus make its way into print around the world. This novel combines a legendary literary love story with a narrative about two women empowered to lead lives of extraordinary intrigue and risk. This debut captures a watershed moment in the history of literature - told with soaring emotional intensity and captivating historical detail.
