This fast-paced fictional work tells the story of Bulgarian freedom fighters during Communism’s final years, of their valiant attempts to smuggle dissidents to freedom in the West, and of their desperate battles with the Durjavna Sigurnost, the Bulgarian secret police who seek to kill them. It tells also of a parallel conflict, of one of the freedom fighters—a member of the tiny band, an émigré, a writer living in New York City—who engages in the story’s fiercest struggle, seeking to publish serious stories about these dauntless men in a Western literary culture that rejects heroism for anti-heroism. Published by ARCS's partner institution in the United States ARCB Inc.

But then, it isn't an espionage story. Or it is-?
It is the story of a young writer who wants to publish serious hero stories in a literary culture that has rejected heroism for anti-heroism. The way Bernstein integrates the thriller plot with his serious theme about literary heroism is absolutely unique. I haven't read something so well done for years.
This is a great read--and an intellectually stimulating one. What a movie this story will make.
