Nancy – thank you for posting this. I just finished Lady of the Snakes and thoroughly enjoyed it. What struck me most was the depiction of Jane’s “juggle” – she did not have a hundred thoughts and to-do lists in her mind. On the contrary, when she turned to her work, she felt like she was “deep sea diving” – I loved that description of her pure, total immersion in work and scholarship, when she was able to block out the world. I did get tired of hearing about “Masha”-this and “Masha”-that but that is a testament to Pastan’s writing ability. That is really how consumed with Masha Jane was. She is a great writer – I am going to check out her other book next.
