Inhaltsangabe: Thrown together as children by the Soviet regime and told to skate for the good of the state, Sergei Grinkov and Katia Gordeeva became the most celebrated pairs skaters in the world--falling madly in love, marrying, and having a beautiful baby daughter. But after winning two Olympic gold medals and four World Championships, Katia's world collapsed when Sergei suffered a fatal heart attack at the age of 28. A deeply moving, heartfelt memoir of their remarkable lives, this is Katia's final love letter to her beloved Sergei. This edition will contain an epilogue written by Ekaterina Gordeeva. 16-page photo insert. National ads/media.
Vom Hörbuch: Can a woman in her early twenties write memoirs worth listening to? She can if she's "Katia" Gordeeva, Olympic Gold Medal winner, wife and figure skating partner of the late Sergei Grinkov. In dark, measured tones narrator Irina Lechova expresses the full measure of Katia's shock and grief at the loss of her entire life after the sudden death of Grinkov--her best friend, her husband, her skating partner, the father of her child. "No one who has such a wonderful life," she reflects with deep Russian drama, "should expect it to last." Not only do we learn a lot about the spartan world of athletics in the Soviet Union, Lechova's haunting delivery projects beyond the loving words of the text, suggesting shades of loneliness in an old-fashioned marriage (by American standards) with a large age difference between the partners. Listening to Lechova's completely credible performance, one wishes Katia all the best as she continues to create "her new life." E.K.D. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
