Reviewer/Former Editorial Intern

I am currently a Senior in Pace University. I started interning for The BookReporter in September and have been loving it ever since! Before this, I was an intern at Pegasus Books. As you can tell, I love to read and hope to work in the publishing industry one day.

When writer Arthur Ransome leaves his unhappy marriage in England and moves to Russia to work as a journalist, he has little idea of the violent revolution about to erupt. Unwittingly, he finds himself at its center, tapped by the British to report back on the Bolsheviks even as he becomes dangerously, romantically entangled with Trotsky's personal secretary. Both sides seek to use Arthur to gather and relay information for their own purposes...and both grow to suspect him of being a double agent.
