Description: Leonid Eitingon was a KGB assassin who dedicated his life to the Soviet regime. He was in China in the early 1920s, in Turkey in the late 1920s, in Spain during the Civil War, and, crucially, in Mexico, helping to organize the assassination of Trotsky. 'œAs long as I live,' Stalin said, 'œnot a hair of his head shall be touched.' It did not work out like that. Max Eitingon was a psychoanalyst, a colleague, friend and proteÌgeÌ of Freud's. He was rich, secretive and'”through his friendship with a famous Russian singer'” implicated in the abduction of a white Russian general in Paris in 1937.Motty Eitingon was a New York fur dealer whose connections with the Soviet Union made him the largest trader in the world. Imprisoned by the Bolsheviks, questioned by the FBI. Was Motty everybody's friend or everybody's enemy?? Mary-Kay Wilmers, best known as the editor of the London Review of Books , began looking into aspects of her remarkable family twenty years ago. The result is a book of astonishing scope and thrilling originality that throws light into some of the darkest corners of the last century. At the center of the story stands the author herself'”ironic, precise, searching, and stylish'”wondering not only about where she is from, but about what she's entitled to know.
