Reviews

“This is an autobiography, a collection of memories of Vladimir Maz'ya … . The book is written in a highly readable and inviting style and spiced with warmth and an occasional touch of humor. … This autobiography can be recommended to readers with a mathematical background, because after all this is a book about a scientist and mathematician, but also to those interested in the story of post-war Soviet society.” (Aleksandar M. Nikolić, Mathematical Reviews, September, 2015)

“Maz’ya’s recollections map a personal landscape of hopes realized and sorrows endured and makes for a vivid picture of these times and this largely closed country. This memoir should be of interest to those looking for insight into daily life in Soviet Russia, especially life for Jewish families, as much if not more so than to learn about the author’s career as a mathematician.” (Tom Schulte, MAA Reviews, November, 2014)
