About the Book
The Cold War’s at its hottest in 1953 when Dora Berlin hires Bruce Harnes, a handsome young classical-music manager, to start a summer festival on her Westchester County estate. But there’s a catch: Ever since the rich widow’s fling 20 years earlier with a famous Russian inventor (an affair Stalin himself broke off, as recounted in Meyers’ My Mad Russian), the FBI has been keeping tabs on her, and now it blackmails Bruce into spying for it.

To direct his festival, Bruce hires the most talented musician of the age—the Russian defector David Spegall (who happens to be his ex-lover)—then watches in dismay as David hits it off with their patroness. Jealousy will ultimately spur Bruce to a mad scheme of liquidating his rival. But is the FBI still one step ahead? And why is the KGB in the picture, too?

A riveting story of espionage, enacted by vivid and unforgettable characters (a meditation, too, on art and promiscuity), Another’s Fool is an acutely observed and beautifully detailed account of a time and place where what people have to do in order to survive—while being able to live with themselves—becomes more complicated than ever.
