PostPadura's "The Man who Loved Dogs" (Paul Levine, Denmark, 01/04/18 2:39 pm)
Those who are interested in another fascinating view of Trotsky in Mexico should read Leonardo Padura's superb novel, The Man Who Loved Dogs.
Padura, a Cuban novelist, writes an imaginative study of Leon Trotsky, his murderer Ramón Mercader, and the worlds of Russia, Spain, Mexico, and, of course, Cuba.
JE comments: Paul Levine reminds me of a book I promised to read three years ago, but still haven't. For shame, JE!
WAISer Luciano Dondero, who was a Trotskyist in his youth, first brought Padura's novel to our attention in 2014. One reviewer described the work as a Russian novel, due to its length, its Dostoevskian psychology, and its Tolstoyan historical scope.
