'Wonderfully rich ... magnificent and compelling ... a delight to read'
  Antony Beevor

'A tour de force by the great storyteller of modern Russian historians ... Figes mobilizes a cast of serf harems, dynasties, politburos, libertines, filmmakers, novelists, composers, poets, tsars and tyrants ... superb, flamboyant and masterful'
  Simon Sebag-Montefiore, Financial Times

'Awe-inspiring ... Natasha's Dance has all the qualities of an epic tragedy'
  Mail on Sunday

'It is so much fun to read that I hesitate to write too much, for fear of spoiling the pleasures and surprises of the book'
  Sunday Telegraph

'Magnificent ... Figes is at his exciting best'
  Guardian

'Breathtaking ... The title of this masterly history comes from War and Peace, when the aristocratic heroine, Natasha Rostova, finds herself intuitively picking up the rhythm of a peasant dance ... One of those books that, at times, makes you wonder how you have so far managed to do without it'
  Independent on Sunday

'Thrilling, dizzying ... I would defy any reader not to be captivated'
