Dreiser's Russian Diary, Hardback Book


Theodore Dreiser's Russian Diary is an extended record of the American writer's travels throughout the Soviet Union in 1927-28.

Dreiser was initially invited to Moscow for a week-long observance of the tenth anniversary of the October Revolution.

He asked, and was granted, permission to make an extended tour of the country. This previously unpublished diary is a firsthand record of life in the USSR during the 1920s as seen by a leading American cultural figure.

It is a valuable primary source, surely among the last from this period of modern history.
