Volkov the Fraud,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Testimony: The Memoirs of Dmitri Shostakovich as related to and edited by Solomon Volkov (Paperback)
Does Solomon Volkov actually exist? Because if he does only something like the mediaeval rack seems the only treatment for his utterly meretricious and vulgar attempt to rise to fame on Shostakovich's coat-tail. Thankfully, Laurel Fay's rigorously scrupulous biography has - or ought by now to have - consigned this monstrosity to be sent for pulping.
