Historical Footnote

Wednesday's Tracinski Letter linked to an article in the New York Review, which led me in turn to a Wikipedia article about the Solovki prison, the first Soviet death camp, originally a monastery and close to the Finnish border, facilitating escape. Rand's Red Pawn, a movie treatment that was her first literary sale, is set in just such a place. Solovki was first known in the west in 1934. I hadn't known how close to the facts Rand's setting was.
