Red Love, a tragi­com­ic mas­ter­piece, is based on the Rosen­berg case, the most noto­ri­ous Sovi­et espi­onage tri­al of the twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry. David Evanier, win­ner of the Aga Khan Fic­tion Prize and a one-time insid­er into Amer­i­can Com­mu­nism, writes with satir­ic bite and deep human­i­ty. Red Love assumes what many books inspired by the Rosen­berg case have labored to deny: the guilt of the Rosen­bergs. Evanier inter­viewed many of the key fig­ures in the case, includ­ing oth­er mem­bers of the Rosen­berg spy ring, mem­bers of Julius Rosen­berg’s fam­i­ly, and the FBI agents that appre­hend­ed the Rosenbergs.
