NYRB is pleased to receive praise for Sasha Abramsky's The House of Twenty Thousand Books from Michael Dirda in The Washington Post.
Dirda writes, "The House of Twenty Thousand Books lovingly recreates an intellectual milieu that was built around old books, chess games, Russian dominoes, Eastern European food, hot tea, family and long evenings spent in spirited political debate."
