Faraway Music

Svetlana Alliluyeva


Svetlana Alliluyeva (née Stalin) grew up in the USSR, in what was known as the “Camp of Dragons”, where her father Joseph was the adorned and cherished alpha male. Considered the princess of this world, Svetlana dared to challenge her father’s haven of socialism and eventually escaped. No other woman in history has orchestrated a similar mutiny.

Faraway Music is the third volume of Ms. Alliluyeva’s autobiography, covering the seventeen year period she lived in the United States. Alliluyeva candidly describes her search for Man, God and personal life in her chosen homeland.

Fate led her to a commune of professional architects in the U.S. governed in cult fashion by the widow of Frank Lloyd Wright. In this volume, Alliluyeva reveals fascinating information that she was not permitted to include in her previous book Only One Year, including never before seen documents and photos from her personal album.
