Review of: The Noonday DemonPublished in: The Guardian
Solomon... is acutely aware of the contradictions at every turn of his tale, and the investigative reporter in him overrides the easier impulse to self-dramatisation.
The tone is compassionate and engaging throughout... Timely and enjoyable: a rich collage of personality and adventure.
An intimate, thoughtful glimpse of Moscow's and Leningrad's artistic vanguards, walking on ice in the unpredictable thaw of glasnost.
