(From the publisher):
History: The Home Movie tells the story of two families, one relatively famous, one completely obscure - the family of Russian poet and novelist Boris Pasternak, and the author's own family, the Raines - whose lives touch each other and are touched by history in different ways. The Pasternaks are part of the European diaspora, driven the length of the continent - first by Stalin, then by Hitler - from Moscow to Munich, and then to Oxford, where the Raines have their home.
