Read in December, 2009

Jeff writes really well, so that this does indeed read like a novel, as the puff quote promises.

I learnt a whole heap about the Communist party through this. I really had no idea how the Soviet Union controlled what happened in Australia under Stalin. Terrifying.

And hey, who can resist reading about a charming young radical who nobody could resist? His many romances were almost as interesting as thinking about a time when people met in endless study groups really thinking they were about to overthrow capitalism. sigh.
