Martin Amis "Koba the Dread"
Koba the Dread is the successor to Martin Amis's celebrated memoir, Experience.
It is largely political (while remaining personal). It addresses itself to the central lacuna of twentieth century thought: the indulgence of communism by intellectuals of the west. In between the personal beginning and the personal ending, Amis gives us perhaps the best one hundred pages ever written about Stalin: Koba the Dread, Losif the terrible.
