From the Publisher. Eva Zeisel, (1906–2011) was a world-famous industrial designer known particularly for her mass-production ceramics. Her designs are displayed in major museums around the world. During Eva’s 80-year career she worked in many countries, including the Soviet Union (1932–1937). At age 29 she was caught up in the early Stalinist purges and falsely accused of plotting to assassinate Stalin. She spent 16 months in an NKVD prison, mostly in solitary confinement. Recent discoveries show that Stalin took a personal interest in her case. Her memoir is poetic, amusing, charming and chilling. Many of its details are included in her friend Arthur Koestler's novel Darkness At Noonhttp://evazeiselmemoir.com
