Following the life of Guido Baracchi, the playboy and dilettante whose love affair with Marxism and the Communist Party took him from his father's astronomical observatory to Stalin's Russia—and across the world—this story explores the life of an idealist dedicated to Communism. Entwined with political intrigue, this study includes a series of tempestuous romances with poets, artists, and playwrights as the idealist searches the world for answers to his beliefs.

This is the story of Guido Baracchi, the playboy and dilettante who experienced communism at it's best and it's worst. Impassioned, funny and beautifully written, it makes a provocative argument about the history and the future of radical politics.
