Overview

THE SECRET CITY.....IN THIS NOVEL IS ULTIMATELY THAT OF THE HUMAN HEART! 250 PAGES IN PAPERBACK! A HISTORICAL NOVEL! A THOUGHT PROVOKING READ!

• This volume includes a “Detailed Biography” of our author, Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole.

WHAT is the secret city of the title? Petro- grad? Yes, partly. But much more is it the citadel of the Russian proverb which recites: "In each man's heart there is a secret town at whose altars the true prayers are offered!"

And so what we have in this book before us is first (and always foremost) the story of several lives. Petrograd itself, with its insane atmosphere on the eve of the Revolution, is painted for us per- sistently, with many patient and wonderful brush strokes. The Revolution, or the first weeks of it, are narrated for us with an eyewitness's veracity and an eyewitness's incompleteness. But Petrograd and the Revolution ... all that . . . are put before us only so far as they enter into the lives of a few people a family of Russians and three casual Englishmen. Which is as it should be. Petrograds change, revolutions come and go; but the secret city of the human heart is not transformed. Human motives remain. Human passions ebb and flow. Human hopes perish and are reborn.

The people of Mr. Walpole's novel are completely realized. They are as much alive as if they moved in the flesh before you.
