The Green Lantern

The Green Lantern: A Romance of Stalinist Russia by Jerome Charyn

If you ever wondered what it might have been like to be a Shakespearean actor in Stalinist Russia falling in and out of favor with Stalin, The Green Lantern will provide a glimpse. The book feels realistic to me; I was never in Russia during Stalin’s rule, but I feel like I was after reading The Green Lantern.

Jerome Charyn is a wonderfully versatile and under-appreciated author. He has written quite a number of books, and I would recommend any of them.
