“Grisha’s Loop” is a memoir of Marsha Samoylenko Denison’s immigrant father’s life and escape from Russia in 1922.

Marsha Samoylenko Denison’s captivating tale of resilience and endurance, “Grisha’s Loop - My Slavic Saga: From the Bolshevik Revolution to America - A Story of Courage and Survival,” delves into the remarkable life of Gregoire Ivanovich Samoylenko, the author’s father. Based on his unfinished autobiography, “My Slavic Saga,” penned in the early 1930s with the assistance of his close friend, Arthur Cornwall Knapp, this story takes readers on a profound journey through history.

The narrative commences with Gregory’s modest origins and participation in the Russian Revolution as a Tsar army soldier. Enlisted in military service to defend his homeland, he is forced to abandon his engineering studies at Petrograd University. As he navigates the landscapes of Russia and the Black Sea, he is a firsthand witness to the devastating toll of war and individual suffering, a testament to the weight of history he carries.

Gregory’s path unfolds with poignant complexity, guided by love, haunted by loss, entangled in intrigue, and confronted by danger. Despite the trials and tribulations, his unwavering spirit drives him towards a new beginning in America. Settling in Boston, he forges a new life, embracing love and starting a family, yet haunted by terrifying memories that propel him to document his turbulent past.

Gregory’s daughter, Marsha, rekindles her father’s memorable journey by blending her memories with the essence of his lasting legacy. Through the perspective of her storytelling, she guarantees that the cherished memories of her Ukrainian father persist, serving as a testimony to the everlasting strength of family connections.

For its invaluable look into the life of an émigré in one of history’s most tumultuous times, “Grisha’s Loop - My Slavic Saga” was turned into a screenplay by Better Bound House.
