This work of fiction is an interesting look at the "bad boy" of Russian history, Rasputin. Through the story of his daughter, Maria's, supposed interrogation by the poet Aleksandr Blok, as well as recollections by Rasputin's assassin, Count Yousoupoff, we are given a look at the last week of the mystic. Josephine Bailey gives life to this work with her spirited performance. She is energetic and lively as we hear the 18-year-old daughter describe her father's last week on earth. The Maria we hear is filled with the energy of adolescence as well as its naïveté and strong-mindedness. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
