Breaking Stalin's Nose Chapter 8

By Eugene Yelchin

Chapter 8

  • When Sasha arrives in Red Square, he imagines going up to Stalin's office and telling him about his father's arrest. In his daydream (or night-waking-dream in this case), Stalin reacts immediately to have his dad set free.
  • The Kremlin guards see him, though, and try to catch him. One soldier falls, and his gun goes off.
