ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Mosca, 1949. È notte fonda quando Olga Ivinskaja viene prelevata dall’angusta cel - la che divide con altre prigioniere. Quello che gli uomini in nero vogliono sapere – e che Olga rifiuta ostinatamente di confessare – è se davvero il grande Pasternak stia lavorando a un’opera sovversiva in grado di gettare cattiva luce sul regime sovietico. Ma invece di mettere nero su bianco le informazioni che l’interrogatore prova a estorcerle, Irina impugna la penna per raccontare la sua storia. La storia di un amore proibito più tenace persino della prigionia. E di un romanzo, 'Il dottor Živago', più forte di ogni censura. A Washington, intanto, presso la sede centrale della CIA, la giovane Irina viene arruolata come dattilografa e presto promossa al ruolo di spia. In piena Guerra Fredda, tra i suoi obiettivi c’è quello, delicatissimo, di aggirare il bando che vieta la pubblicazione di Živago in Unione Sovietica, e risvegliare la sete di libertà della popolazione sfruttando l’arma più micidiale e sottovalutata che esista: il potere delle parole. Epico, appassionato e più attuale che mai, 'Non Siamo Mai Stati Qui' è il racconto a più voci di un’epoca travagliata e di una formidabile avventura umana, sentimentale e letteraria. Un vibrante omaggio a un tempo in cui “credevamo che i libri potessero cambiare la Storia”.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
A thrilling tale of secretaries turned spies, of love and duty, and of sacrifice--inspired by the true story of the CIA plot to infiltrate the hearts and minds of Soviet Russia, not with propaganda, but with the greatest love story of the twentieth century: 'Doctor Zhivago'.
At the height of the Cold War, two secretaries are pulled out of the typing pool at the CIA and given the assignment of a lifetime. Their mission: to smuggle Doctor Zhivago out of the USSR, where no one dare publish it, and help Pasternak's magnum opus make its way into print around the world. Glamorous and sophisticated Sally Forrester is a seasoned spy who has honed her gift for deceit all over the world--using her magnetism and charm to pry secrets out of powerful men. Irina is a complete novice, and under Sally's tutelage quickly learns how to blend in, make drops, and invisibly ferry classified documents. 'The Secrets We Kept' combines a legendary literary love story--the decades-long affair between Pasternak and his mistress and muse, Olga Ivinskaya, who was sent to the Gulag and inspired Zhivago's heroine, Lara--with a narrative about two women empowered to lead lives of extraordinary intrigue and risk. From Pasternak's country estate outside Moscow to the brutalities of the Gulag, from Washington, D.C. to Paris and Milan, 'The Secrets We Kept' captures a watershed moment in the history of literature--told with soaring emotional intensity and captivating historical detail. And at the center of this unforgettable debut is the powerful belief that a piece of art can change the world.
