It is a story about love the true love two proud Jewish underdogs had for each other, and the misguided love an entire generation of American leftists had for a political system whose grand promises masked terrible, irreconcilable truths. They say love will make you do crazy things.

It is a story about love the true love two proud Jewish underdogs had for each other, and the misguided love an entire generation of American leftists had for a political system whose grand promises masked terrible, irreconcilable truths. So, too, will Communism.

David Evanier has distilled the essence of what it was like in that era. This immensely readable novel made so much of that period more understandable to me. I have recommended and even purchased copies for my friends. This item: Red Love: A Novel. There's a problem loading this menu right now.

G. L. I know my jails. This wasn’t so bad. But Solly was a milk shake. We met; we talked; we walked dge. Former member of the Young Communist League. Friend of Harry Brimmer, also known as Jay West, who was in another cell. The Party was ignoring Dolly and Solly completely, so Big Jay never acknowledged Solly in the yard or spoke to him. You should have heard Solly speak Big Jay’s name.

David Evanier, winner of the Aga Khan Fiction Prize and a one-time insider into American Communism, writes with satiric bite and deep humanity.

With a gleam in its eye and tenderness in its heart, David Evanier’s irreverent and incisive novel peers into one of the darkest chapters in American history-the execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg on charges of spying for the Soviet Union. Because, as Suzie Sizzle-great-niece of Dolly and Solly Rubell and star of a goodly number of hardcore films-explains to Gerald, this is not really a story about death, despite its gloomy ending.

David Evanier is an American author. He is currently working on a biography of Morton Sobell. Thomas Mallon writing in Newsday, described Red Love as "an irreverent novel about the case of (Julius Rosenberg) and Ethel Rosenberg", that was likely to "be greeted with howls of anger in all the predictable places. The Nation will be appalled, the Village Voice revolted. The One-Star Jew (North Point Press, 1983). Red Love (Scribner's, 1991).

  • Garr
I found the politics in this interesting, but it is a work of fiction, structured as researched non-fiction. I felt little empathy with any of the characters and the politics naïve in the extreme. The sort of book that might be set for a text in a literature course - good for you, but not a lot of fun.

Based on the Rosenberg case, the novel, Red Love paints a truer picture of Jewish leftism from the 30's through the 50's than any history book could possibly do. David Evanier has distilled the essence of what it was like in that era. This immensely readable novel made so much of that period more understandable to me. I have recommended and even purchased copies for my friends.

Probably the most confusing, disjointed book I have ever read. Read it cover to cover and when I finished I was still unable to put a meaning, gather information or enlightenment on the search for communists from 1920 to 1960.

This book is a fiction treatment of the Ethel and Julius Rosenberg spy case. The author gives episodic vignettes of major and minor players and provides a satisfying portrait of the time surrounding these events (and much later.)
By using vignettes in short chapters, the effect was that of a nice tapestry. (Most characters were too shallow to follow in a straight narrative.)
I had often wondered what motivated many of the foolish people who followed the Old Left. This book answered many of my questions.
My only regret is that some character appeared too briefly. But all spoke with a chord of truth that I had not previously heard.
