Prologue: This is Doctor Zhivago : may it make its way around the world -- The roof over the whole of Russia has been torn off -- Pasternak, without realizing it, entered the personal life of Stalin -- I have arranged to meet you in a novel -- You are aware of the anti-Soviet nature of the novel? -- Until it is finished, I am a fantastically, manically unfree man -- Not to publish a novel like this would constitute a crime against culture -- If this is freedom seen through Western eyes, well I must say we have a different view of it -- We tore a big hole in the Iron Curtain -- We'll do it black -- He also looks the genius : raw nerves, misfortune, fatality -- There would be no mercy, that was clear -- Pasternak's name spells war -- I am caught like a beast at bay -- A college weekend with Russians -- An unbearably blue sky -- It's too late for me to express regret that the book wasn't published -- Afterword
