Abstract:

"Norman Beim, actor and playwright has contrasted two widely different worlds with finess, thus creating a fascinating and unique novel that ping pongs between a factual history of Stalin's life and reign, and the fictionalized tale of a touring company in the play, 'Darkness at noon' about Soviet Russia. ... Deliciously incisive, and the touring data reveals as much about the types of venues road shows played in the 1950's as it informs about Stalin and his maniacal recreation of himself and his country"--Page 4 of cover.
