About the Author:

At the time of Kirov's murder, Eugenia Semyonovna Ginzburg was 27 years old, a happily married mother of three children, a loyal party member, and a schoolteacher and journalist in Kazan in eastern Russia. At that time, also, there was published a four-volume History of the All-Union Communist Party, which, in its coverage of the 1905 Czarist terrors, displeased Stalin; it contained certain "errors" in connection with the theory of permanent revolution. Professor Nikolai Naumovich Elvov, who had written the offending passage, also happened to be the author of a source book on Tartar history. Incredibly, Mrs. Ginzburg was arrested and denounced as a Trotskyite and counter-revolutionary because she had failed to write a review for her publication denouncing Elvov's Tartar book. In short, the masters of a Brechtian netherworld of logical non-reason accused her of not doing something she had not done—and of course she could not deny not doing it.

Ian Boland is a contributor for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt titles including: "Within the Whirlwind".
