The Eighth Life by Nino Haratischvili, a 1000 page novel which spans six generations across Georgia, Russia, London and Berlin, through the October Revolution,  the fall of the Iron Curtain, Stalin and Perestroika and is epically wonderful.

Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister by Jung Chang – author of Wild Swans many years ago. It’s about the three Soong sisters from Shanghai who were beautiful, wealthy, well educated, and each in her own way went on to have powerful marriages and alliances, and huge political influence. Fascinating stuff.
