Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0720611350, Paperback)This novel was the result of Roth's visit to Moscow in 1926 when speculation about the fate of Trotsky was rife. Filled as it is with revolutionary plotters, underground cabels, the February Revolution, and the Red Army, Roth referred to this work as his Trotsky novel."" But the experiences of the book's hero, the Trotsky-like Friederich Kargan, are as recognizably those of a less well-known Jewish outsider, a perpetual exile searching for a place in the new Europe and a set of values to counter his own skepticism and growing disillusionment-Joseph Roth himself. ""A novel one should not wish to be without.... Roth is a very fine writer indeed.""--Angela Carter.
