Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The narrative of Six Red Months in Russia is engrossing and vivid. While few might admit it, many historians of this period seem to have relied more heavily on [Louise] Bryant's account than on [husband John Reed's] Ten Days. Her sweep was large: she described her journey into Russia, conditions in Petrograd, the tense atmosphere at the Winter Palace before its overthrow, the formation of the constituent assembly, the state of the military camps, free speech in the new regime, the decline of the church, and even her journey out of Russia by way of Sweden. Little escaped her eye." From the new preface by Mary Dearborn

Review:

"Miss Bryant appears a demure and pretty girl, with a large hat, a stylish suit and gray stockings. Her voice is high but has a plaintive note to it. She amuses the crowd, because, with the air of an ingénue, she hurls darts at Government departments, holds people up to ridicule, and with a fearful voice appeals to American fair play to be just to a beneficent Bolshevist Government and give it a chance....In the burst of applause the demure little speaker sits down." The New York Times, March, 1919

Review:

"Despite her exposure to the Russian revolution, Louise has changed little....Aside from the George Sand haircut, she is the same little radicalist and vigorous performer that left Portland three years ago." The Oregonian, April 3, 1919

I would like to comment on the article I just read which seeks to sketch the lives of John Reed and Louise Bryant. I saw the film 'Reds' last night and in spite of its lingering hollywoodisation throughout, it stirred me enough to further research the lives of the fascinating couple, the protagonists of the film! I was struck by Louise rather more than John Reed. Louise does come through as a woman fighting to be independent, striving for her own individuality and carve a name for herself through her own work rather than being Mrs.Reed. To that extent I find the article stimulating!
