Call Sign – Dr. Thomas E. B.

As a retired Professor of Russian Language and Literature, I regret that this fascinating book was not available when I taught Soviet Literature. The 1920s had many great writers, but Zhdanov destroyed Russian literature in 1932 with his Socialist Realism. This great book about Lilia gives insights to life in Russia after the Revolution of 1917 and during the oppressive 1920-30s. It is also a wonderful portrayal of life during the Second World War and the frightful period afterwards. The heroine would carry the interest of any student. I would have used the book in my course.C
