This is the only full, authentic text, written by Stalin’s daughter in 1963; smuggled to India; retrieved by the author when she left Russia early in 1967 and taken by her, first to Switzerland and then to the USA; entrusted by her to Priscilla Johnson for translation into English; and, after the closest collaboration with the translator, authorised by Svetlana.
