Product description

Review

"Kelly's highly readable and enjoyable book is the first biography in English of this intriguing figure."--Jan Dalley, "Financial Times
""Laurence Kelly, the prize-winning author of a life of Lermontov, has spent many years delving into Russian and Persian archives and found hitherto uncovered telling details. But he wears his meticulous scholarship lightly and tells a riveting tale that reads like a Russian novel."--Shusha Guppy, "Times Higher Educational Supplement"
"The subject is brilliant and multi-faceted. Both Griboyedov's life and death make for an extraordinary tale."--"Moscow Times
""The exotic life of a supremely talented but (in the West) little-known Russian. A well-told, informative tale, contemporary relevance -- what more could the reader ask?"--George Walden, "Sunday Telegraph
""My book of the year is Laurence Kelly's "Diplomacy and Murder in Tehran...""--Sir Raymond Carr, "The Spectator
""Groboyedov's life sounds like a tall story, a heroic myth. Here, it has been investigated with exemplary thoroughness, retold with a fine sense of tact and restraint."--Philip Hensher, " The Spectator
""Laurence Kelly must be congratulated on finding such a dramatic story and telling it in such a lively style. Anyone with even a casual interest in Russian history will be gripped, and moved, by this book." --John Jolliffe, "The Tablet"
