Tsar's Dwarf by Peter H Fogtdal

Book Description

Soerine, a deformed female dwarf from Denmark, is given as a gift to Tsar Peter the Great, who is smitten by her freakishness and intellect. Against her will, the Tsar takes Soerine to St. Petersburg, where she becomes a jester in his court. There, she lives a life that both compels and repels her. Soerine eventually gives in to the attentions of Lukas, the Tsar's favorite dwarf, and carves out an existence for herself amidst the squalor and lice-ridden world of dwarfs in the early 18th century. In this inhospitable milieu, Soerine's intelligence and detached wit provide her some small measure of protection -- until disaster strikes in the shape of a priest who wants to "save" her. "The Tsar's Dwarf" is a masterfully told and brilliantly translated novel about aberration, endurance, and the human condition.
