Darkness at NoonBook - 2015
"Based on Stalin's Moscow show trials of the 1930s, Darkness at Noon follows Nicholas Rubashov, an activist who has outlived his usefulness, as he is imprisoned and psychologically tortured by the Party to which he has dedicated his life. As the pressure to confess preposterous crimes increases, he relives a career that embodies the terrible ironies and human betrayals of a totalitarian movement masking itself as an instrument of deliverance. Almost unbearably vivid in its depiction of one man's solitary agony, Darkness at Noon asks questions about ends and means that have relevance not only for the past but for the perilous present." -- Dust jacket.
