AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This gripping new verse novel charts the course of the espionage scandal which rocked sleepy Canberra and the nation in the mid 1950s.

'In April 1954 Australia woke up to discover that Volodya Petrov,an attaché in the Russian embassy in Canberra, was also a colonel in the KGB and was planning to defect. The Petrov Poems charts the unfolding web of intrigue between Petrov, the embassy staff, and his contacts in the West. And the crucial role of his wife Dusya, thrust into a terrible crisis of conscience as the result of her husband’s actions and her past personal history.' (Publisher's blurb)
