Clancy Sigal in California

Well, it means The Spark, which translates into Russian as Iskra. Sounds

Is this the Clancy Sigal who wrote Weekend in Dinlock? An excellent
book, much better than its alter ego The Road to Wigan Pier by Orwell.
Dinlock showed real empathy with and understanding of working people,
unlike Wigan Pier, which was condescending, the work of an outsider.
