From the Publisher
On August 12, 1952, Russia''s greatest Jewish writers were secretly
executed by Stalin. In this remarkable blend of history and
imagination, Paltiel Kossover meets the same fate but, unlike his
real-life counterparts, he is permitted to leave a written
testament. From a Jewish boyhood in pre-revolutionary Russia,
Paltiel traveled down a road that embraced Communism, only to
return to Russia and discover a Communist Party that had become his
mortal enemy. Two decades later, Paltiel''s son, Grisha, reads this
precious record of his father''s life and finds that it illuminates
the shadowed planes of his own.
Passionate and fierce, this story of a father''s legacy to his son
revisits some of the most dramatic events of our century, and
confirms yet again Elie Wiesel''s stature as "a writer of the
highest moral imagination" (San Francisco Chronicle).
