Victor Serge’s ‘Memoirs of a Revolutionary’ praised in ‘The Guardian’

In his glowing review in the June 9th edition of The Guardian, Nicholas Lezard hails Memoirs of a Revolutionary as “a document that is essential, above all, as a denouncement of oppression, an eye-witness account, written in heat and at speed, but with the talent of a true writer…” He laments only that Memoirs was not published sooner, and concludes, “here it is at last, and anyone who cares about justice and freedom of speech should have a copy.”

You can get your copy of Memoirs of a Revolutionary here. NYRB Classics publishes other titles—Conquered City, Unforgiving Years, and The Case of Comrade Tulayev—by Victor Serge, too.
