Summary: "William Burton McCormick vividly depicts the tragedies of the 20th century through eyes of a single Latvian Rifleman. With Wiktor Rooks, we witness the destruction of traditional society and its seemingly conservative values, to be replaced with new social, political and national ideas, innovations all ultimately perverted to hell by their adherents. The novel considers the eternal problems of humanity as cast through the dark prism of actual historical events." -- Professor Kaspars Klavins, Riga Technical University and Fellow, Royal Society of Arts (UK).

Inhaltsangabe: Latvia, 1905. Amidst the ashes of the failed workers' rebellions of 1905, Latvian aristocrat Wiktor Rooks finds that he has lost everything: home and heritage, his life's very purpose. Coerced into the Russian Army, Wiktor is soon swept up into the turbulent years of the Great War and the Bolshevik Revolution. By a twist of fate, he becomes a member of the elite Red Riflemen of the Revolution—a regiment nicknamed "Lenin's Harem" for their absolute loyalty to the cause. Wiktor hides his aristocratic past, finds friendship among the soldiers, and love with a communist girl. When the wars end, he returns to his homeland, but betrayals await and Stalin's soldiers are soon knocking on the door. Set in Russia and Latvia between 1905 and 1941, Lenin's Harem is a story of nationhood, brotherhood, and love throughout the most turbulent years of the twentieth century.
