Douglas Smith: Rasputin says
A hundred years after his murder, the infamous Rasputin continues to excite the popular imagination as the personification of evil. Described as “monumental and soul-shaking” by Publisher’s Weekly, this new biography from prize-winning local historian Douglas Smith combines probing scholarship and powerful storytelling to separate fact from fiction revealing the real life of one of history’s most alluring figures. Drawing on documents from archives in seven countries, Smith presents Rasputin in all his complexity—man of God, voice of peace, loyal subject, adulterer, drunkard. He offers not just a biography of an extraordinary and legendary man, but a fascinating portrait of the twilight of imperial Russia.
