I love the new translation of Doctor Zhivago.  I also love the old translation of Doctor Zhivago.  It seems selfish to keep both, so I'm giving away my old copy of the original translation (which is considered better than the new by Pasternak's niece in this review in The Guardian), a hardcover Everyman edition.  It's so readable, and really a lovely book.

If you'd like it (in exchange for stamps to cover the postage, but otherwise free), leave a comment. If you're the only one who wants it, it's yours.  Otherwise, I'll wait till tomorrow night to announce the winner.
