Odessa, Genius and Death in a City of Dreams
by Charles King
- 336 PAGES
This account looks at the Black Sea's great port city through the lens of its long history of innovative geniuses and nefarious villains. Featured visionaries include Alexander Puskin, Isaac Babel and Ilya Mechnikov, while the havoc-wreaking evildoers are not all human; like many port cities, plagues have been some of the most devastating killers. King also includes a tribute to the Odessa's mostly Jewish diaspora.
