John Burnham Schwartz

The Red Daughter, John Schwartz’s new novel, is a mesmerizing work of historical fiction, telling the story of Josef Stalin’s daughter Svetlana, her defection from Russia, and her life in America through the eyes of a young attorney who closely parallels Schwartz’s own father and his role in the defection. Fact and fiction blend stunningly in this adroit study of a private and public life.
