This article takes its cue from Yuri Slezkine’s book The House of Government, dealing with its three main themes: the daily life of the Bolshevik nomenklatura at the turn of 1920s and 1930s, the kinship of Bolshevism with millenaristic movements, and most of all the central role that literature played in the worldview of two generations of Russian Communists.
