About the Author
Bryna Kranzler is a graduate of Barnard College where she studied playwriting, and received the Helen Prince Memorial Prize for Dramatic Composition. Her first play was a finalist for the Eugene O'Neill Memorial Theater Competition, and was scheduled for production twice: the first time, the theater owner died, and the season was shut down; the second time, the director committed suicide. For the benefit of the arts community, she got out of playwriting and earned an MBA from Yale University to make up for her misspent youth. She spent 15 years in marketing for health-care, high tech and consumer products companies before returning to writing. Her first book, The Accidental Anarchist, is the winner of multiple awards, including the Sharp Writ Book Award for General Non-Fiction, the Readers Favorite Award for Historical/Cultural Non-Fiction, the International Book Award, and National Indie Excellence Award for a Historical Biography, and the "USA Best Books" Award for a Historical Biography.

What might have been a tale of misery takes on the hue of humor and appreciation for what life can bring. There is even a touch of romance in the way a hastily scribbled note pushed into the hesitant hand of a young girl, a stranger he passes on his way to a death sentence, leads eventually to a search for that girl, who was to become Bryna's grandmother.
Above all, it is Yakov's complete lack of self-sympathy, his ironic humor and the very descriptive prose from his notes and journals, held together by Bryna's orderly yet artful hand, that drew me in and kept me reading.
Kindle users should note that the type size is almost unreadably small. It's less than half the size of the smallest normal type on the Kindle, about 3 point size. I have to increase it three times to read it at all, and even then it's still smaller than most normal books. And as the type size increases, the line spacing (double spacing) and paragraph spacing (quadruple spacing) increases proportionally, leaving only about 175 words per page. Before buying this book, download a sample to see if this problem has been fixed. The "Look Inside" feature does not give you a true picture of how the text actually looks on the Kindle reader.
The content deserves 5 stars, but the Kindle formatting is worth less than 1 star. I hate to punish the author for the publisher's blunder, but this is unacceptable. If the publisher corrects the mistake, I'll gladly change this review.
Edited on 18 November 2012. Mr Kranzler replied immediately to my review to say he's working on a new version. Accordingly, I've changed my rating from 1 star to 4.
