School Library Journal Review

YA-- A breezy, gossipy sketch of life in the Soviet Union under Stalin's rule as seen in part through the eyes of his ``official'' film projectionist. Lavishly illustrated with 150 black-and-white photographs, this book offers numerous anecdotes--some of them no doubt apocryphal--about the home life of the reclusive dictator and his cronies and a chilling portrait of the paranoid society of Russia in the 1930s, when millions of people simply disappeared. Although intended as a tie-in with Konchalovsky's new film of the same name, The Inner Circle can easily stand on its own as a fascinating introduction to modern Soviet history and society, and can be used in conjunction with the excellent film for the same purpose.--Richard Lisker, Fairfax County Public Library, Fairfax, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
