Margarita Borkaev (Borukaeva) has a romantic profession. She is a microbe hunter, and she pursued her prey with great ardor in some of the most prestigious laboratories of the Soviet Union. Then fate willed her to the front lines of microbiology in the United States of America. Undoubtedly, the riddles of this science seemed to her fantastically fascinating in light of the romantic nature of her soul, which, from her earliest adolescence manifested itself in its pull to find self-expression in poetry. Thus arose her first collection of poems (published in Moscow). Poemsfrom those giving a lyric voice to important social issues, to poems that chronicled the joys, the vicissitudes, and the sorrows of love and sought to embody the beauty of naturewere written throughout her entire life. These poems appear regularly in the Russian-speaking American newspapers. Margarita also took a great interest in prose. Her essays, stories, and short novels have been published in American (in English) and Russian-American (in Russian) magazines and newspapers. R ecently, she has published this book in Russia. The book is based on autobiographical events, but includes stories about people involved in Margaritas life, and reflects conflicts she experienced in the Soviet Union. The content of some of the stories in this book is dramatic, but the style is so lyrical that it reminds one of verse in prose form. The book was instantly absorbed and disseminated by her readers. I found to reading this book effortless, entirely engrossing, since in it is reflected all of the facets of Margaritas character, her openness towards new people and new experiences, her friendliness, her unlimited capacity for compassion and understanding. Margarita has a remarkable ability understand of the core of a person and then to describe it with such affection and sympathy that, as a reader, I felt I shared not just her adventures, but also her friendships. I advise you to read this book as a long time friend and an old admirer of Margaritas talent. I am certain, that like me, once you begin it will capture your imagination until you reach the final paragraph. And, like me, long after you close the cover you will still reflect on the extraordinary events you will have found there, and the unpredictable twist of fate that can be expected us all.
