“What might have been simply the story of a man leaving his marriage for a younger woman blossoms into much more. …Kalotay celebrates art in general, even considering what it is and isn’t, in prose that is brisk and concise as well as sensuous and sumptuous. …A fictive musical and familial feast.” –Michele Leber, Booklist (starred review) more>

Russian Winter
{first released 2011}

"A magnificent tale of love, loss, betrayal and redemption … And while there is fascinating information and insight about ballet, jewels, music, art and politics, the emotional center of the book holds everything together.
