I've never heard of Cictor Serge but I'll keep that in mind. I always love recommendations from like-minded readers. :D

Have you read The Crimes of Paris? (A lot of bloggers were reviewing that one and giving it away.) Victor Serge appears as a "character" in there. It talks about his days as an anarchist in Paris.
