BOOK OF THE WEEK
In a finely woven series of flashbacks and correspondence, Lev Termen, the Russian scientist, inventor, and spy, tells the story of his life to his “one true love,” Clara Rockmore, the finest theremin player in the world. In the first half of the book, we learn of Termen’s early days as a scientist in Leningrad during the Bolshevik Revolution, the acclaim he receives as the inventor of the theremin, and his arrival in 1930s New York under the sponsorship of the Russian state, to whom he must maintain allegiance. There he teaches the theremin to eager students and markets his inventions to American companies. In the second half, the novel builds to a crescendo as Termen returns to Russia, where he is imprisoned in a Siberian gulag and later brought to a Moscow prison. Throughout all this, his love for Clara remains constant and unflagging.
The book is steeped in beauty, wonder, and heartbreak; it is a novel of epic proportions and beautiful imagery, depicting a proud Russian scientist who is swept away by American decadence, and for this, is made to pay an enormous debt to his beloved Russia.
