Heart and Soul

Heart and Soul – E. Maltsev

I’m reading this book right now, about half way through.  It’s a bout a Siberian couple separated by the Great Patriotic War.  He’s a bit of a self-centered doofus, and she’s a motivated labour brigade leader.  By the end I’m sure she’ll have converted him to a more progressive, Soviet worldview.  The design of this book is typical of the Foreign Language Publishing House’s nicely bound novels, illustrated by G. Zavyalova, and designed by N. Vasilev.  Published 1953.

Stalin Prize 1949.

Here’s the dust jacket:


And here’s the cloth cover:
