"The narrator begins this slim, taut and poignant narrative with a description of his father, "the John Wayne of socialism," a Southern Baptist who organized restaurant workers in New York during the Depression. After a 30-year separation, the son visits the father's deathbed and, mindful of the man's early ideals, segues into his cautionary tale of the rise and fall of Jean Lambert Tallien, leader of the French Revolution. In brisk vernacular, Tuten tells of Tallien's intense commitment as a young man to the Revolutionary Commune, his election to the Committee of General Security, and then his fateful encounter with the beautiful Therese de Fontenay, widow of a recently beheaded nobleman."
