Product Details


“Ali folds his drama around the tight, cultlike atmosphere of Communist Party life, peopled by idealists who find their lives encumbered by betrayals, power grabs, and corruption and who, in the post-Communist era, must come to terms with their complicity with Stalinism … This is a valuable book, especially for those interested in the current thinking of the European left.”
Publishers Weekly

“At its best in its examination of the painful and morally doubtful consequences of the compromises forced on those who live their lives in the service of political ideas … An intellectually and emotionally engaging story.”
Times Literary Supplement

“Tariq Ali constructs a stunning fresco, remarkable in its lucidity … A subtle novel in which history reveals its inner side with a moving modesty.”
Le Monde
