Image of front cover and spine piece of dust jacket for a book. The title is rendered in red and the author in white on a tan background along the spine piece; title and author are repeated on the front cover, the title rendered in white on a red background and the author in white over the black and white cover illustration. The cover illustration has been made to appear as a black and white photographic portrait of a male figure (Maxim Gorky). The figure is wearing a suit and tie. He has a very bushy mustache and his expression is somewhere between a scowl and a grin. The dust jacket has been made to appear damaged or worn; there are tears along all four edges of the dust jacket.
