28-Palm Beach Post, Thursday, Nov. 21, 1968 Svetlana Polishes Off 2nd Book THE CBS THURSDAY NIGHT MOVIE PERRY MASON N Stalin in 1963, "Only One Year" focuses on her personal and political struggle to seek freedom and her reaction to life outside the Soviet Union, first in India and later in Switzerland. Information compiled from several sources indicated that three chapters deal with more recent political events in the Soviet Union, especially with the repression of dissenting intellectuals at home and the imposition of more rigid controls on the other Communist bloc countries. Mrs. Alliluyeva's thesis is that despite their disavowal of Stalinism, the present Kremlin leaders are again employing some of the methods that characterized Stalin's totalitarian rule. One well qualified East European expert, who saw the manuscript of "Only One Year" said the book was politically more sophisticated and more professionally written then Mrs. Alliluyeva's memoirs, her first published work. Nevertheless, because it will be her second literary ef fort here it is not expected to cause the frenzy that her first book produced in publishing circles and therefore will probably not make as much money. The first book, through newspaper and magazine serialization here and abroad as well as book club royalties, brought in an estimated $3 million, part of which Mrs. Alliluyeva distributed to charities in India. Switzerland and the United States. Rather than disappointing her publishers, the less frenetic atmosphere has, in some ways, pleased them. Even though it means less money, it will also mean less fighting with competing firms over foreign book rights. To avert a repetition of the scramble created by her memoirs, Mrs. Alliluyeva is understood to have asked Can-field to personally handle the new book's foreign rights instead of entrusting them to a literary agent as was done with "Twenty Letters to a Friend." She also decided against letting the book be serialized except for the three political chapters which she would like to have published not by a big commercial magazine or chain, but by one of the smaller publications such as The Atlantic Monthly or Harper's. The more normal and relaxed manner in which Canfield is dealing with the new book has come as a relief to Mrs. Alliluyeva who was embarrassed over the spectacular financial offers commanded by her memoirs. She told numerous friends that she was concerned about the possibility that she might seem to be commercializing her feelings. Reached at her home in Princeton, N.J., a few days ago, Mrs. Alliluyeva cheerfully acknowledged she had "almost finished" the new book, but she turned away any further inquires stating it was "much too soon before publication" to talk about it publicly. She wanted to wait, she said, at least until she has found a translator. uievenne V Autumn 'The Case of the ICE COLD HANDS' 7:00 PM Richard Widmark, Carroll Baker, Sal NLineo, R icardo Montalban, James Stewart, Gilbert Roland and Edward G.Robinson star. 9:00 PM COLOR (CJ N York Timti Ncwi Strvkt NEW YOKK - Svetlana Al-liluyeva, the daughter of Stalin, has written a new book called "Only One Year," about her dramatic flight to the West early in 1967. The book will be published by Harper& Row next fall. According to publishing sources, Mrs. Alliluyeva is making final corrections on the 350-page manuscript she began slightly more than a year ago, soon after the completion of her first book, "Twenty Letters to a Friend." Cass Canfield, senior editor at Harper & Row has confirmed that the publishing house planned to come out with the new book "about next fall" but declined to disclose any details about its contents or about the financial arrangements concerning its publication here and abroad. Harper & Row also published Mrs. Alliluyeva's earlier book.
