Description
Born into a world of privilege in 1907 St. Petersburg, Princess Sophy "Sofka" Dolgorouky fled with her family to England and then to Paris after the Tsar and his family were overthrown, exiled, and executed. As a young woman, Sofka embraced the bohemian culture of the 1920s and 30s; later she was interned in a Nazi prison camp where she worked with the French Resistance and discovered communism, whose cause she would uphold ironically for the rest of her life. Even more outrageous than her conversion from princess to communist, however, was Sofka's private life; she not only believed in sexual freedom but often placed love, literature, and adventure even before her own children. Sofka was much more than a princess in exile; she was a person whose existence was constantly dislocated by revolution, yet believed that revolution was a way to make the world a better place. Sofka gave one of her diaries to her granddaughter, Sofka Zinovieff, who was inspired to uncover the sensational life of the "red princess."
