DESCRIPTION

by Nina Garsoian

Dr. Nina Garsoian's memoirs reach beyond the revelation of a multifaceted life beginning with memories of the Paris emigre world with its memories of the vanished society of Imperial Russia into which she was born and moving to the United States to which she was transported as a child and came to participate in the exiting cultural life of wartime New York with its vivid personalities of European refugees. It is also a story of transition and evolution in the academic world to which she turned after an accident made all thoughts of her first intended musical career impossible.
