Post on one of my Lefty lists:
I have just ordered Trotsky in Norway, published by Northern Illinois University Press. According to the ad it is “a very significant contribution to the biography of Trotsky” as well as “an important contribution to Norwegian political history in the 1930’s.”
Now I yield to no one in fondness for esoteric topics, but this title made me smile. I couldn’t help imagining it as a musical, or perhaps a ballet.
Maybe I’ll order the book, if only in the hope that it will have a picture of Trotsky on skis.
