Stalin’s Barber

Stalin’s Barber is the sometimes humorous and sometimes poignant tale of a down-and-out Albanian who, searching for a better life for himself and his family, ends up in Moscow as Stalin’s personal barber. Artfully written like all of Paul Levitt’s novels, Stalin’s Barber is a deeply human story that amplifies both the absurdity and the cruel psychological costs of the Stalinist regime, richly layered with circumstantial and historical detail.  Not to mention a captivating title which I wish I had thought of myself.
