Novelist's eye for Russia
In the 1930s, Liam Flaherty went to Russia. He arrived by steamship, interacted with the crew, saw how they treated each other, Finns at a port, and then his impressions of the USSR. His observations of what he saw of the lies they told each other, what impressed him, what made them afraid, give one an impressionistic, traveler's eye view of Russia between the two Great Wars. Some of his observations are funny, some are sad, but all speak of truthful experience.
