This weeks book of the week is MArtin Amis’ study of Bolshevism, Stalinism and fellow travelers in the West – Koba the Dread: Laughter and the Twenty Million.

While I frequently disagree with his politics, I think Amis is a talented writer and a sharp critic. I am currently reading his memoir Experience and then plan to read “Koba.” I will let you know what I think.

To get you started here is a review from LA Weekly.
