Description

In Stalin's Carnival, Heighton explores the transformation of Josef Stalin from romantic and political poet to notorious dictator with chilling results. In this finely-crafted collection, the resilient lyrical voice is presented as a means of survival in a time of violence. Heighton recreates a world and a time that feels as vital and immediate to us today as it was over a century ago. Winner of the Gerald Lampert Award in 1990, this reissue has been edited by Heighton and includes a foreword by Ken Babstock.
