A Soviet journalist with the gift of total recall.
A psychologist seeking to rehabilitate herself.
A government censor with a secret past.
Over two decades their fates become entwined as victims and collaborators in Stalin’s campaign to rewrite public memory. Long before fake news was a trending topic, it was called propaganda. And in the Soviet Union, circa 1938, it was the grease that kept Stalin’s machinery of terror in motion. D.W. Gregory takes us to a world where justice is arbitrary and freedom as we know it does not exist.
“All my life I’ve taken such pride in my great memory. But now . . . I’m tasked with learning how to forget.”
