The Great Prince Died

A Novel about the Assassination of Trotsky

Author: Bernard Wolfe

Publisher: University of Chicago Press

ISBN: 022626078X

Category: Fiction

Page: 416

View: 6395

On August 20, 1940, Marxist philosopher, politician, and revolutionary Leon Trotsky was attacked with an ice axe in his home in Coyoacán, Mexico. He died the next day. In The Great Prince Died, Bernard Wolfe offers his lyrical, fictionalized account of Trotsky’s assassination as witnessed through the eyes of an array of characters: the young American student helping to translate the exiled Trotsky’s work (and to guard him), the Mexican police chief, a Rumanian revolutionary, the assassin and his handlers, a poor Mexican “peón,” and Trotsky himself. Drawing on his own experiences working as the exiled Trotsky’s secretary and bodyguard and mixing in digressions on Mexican culture, Stalinist tactics, and Bolshevik history, Wolfe interweaves fantasy and fact, delusion and journalistic reporting to create one of the great political novels of the past century.

The Terrible Loyalty

Author: Sandy Moss


ISBN: 1300705647

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 220

View: 7885

Based on the true story of two men, already lifelong friends, who ventured into the heart of the endless ocean at its loneliest point in a 20-foot sailboat. Embarking on a trip across the Pacific Ocean from California to Hawaii, they navigated by means only of a sextant and the stars. They had planned for an uneventful sail, but encountered a storm that sealed their fates irrevocably together as they battled to survive. Readers will come to know these extraordinary men and their amazing journey--not only on the sea, but beyond--then agonize with them in their most powerful test. Other sailors have crossed the ocean's expanse, but few with such primitive tools, such a small vessel, and the depth of friendship and determination of these two friends.

Although it does not attempt to revive the image of Frost as a benign, white-haired sage, this book presents him in a strikingly different light than did Lawrance Thompson's three-volume biography. William H. Pritchard sees Frost whole, demonstrating the complex interaction between the poet's life and work. Based not only on the poetry, but on letters, notebooks, recorded interviews and public appearances as well, Frost: A Literary Life Reconsidered treats the most interesting and significant aspects of Frost's life and poetry and attempts to offer an attentive, sensitive portrait of an artist whose critical reputation continues to grow.
