Life and Fate (New York Review Books Classics) by Vasily Grossman
Life and Fate (New York Review Books Classics)

Radio 4, January 1, 2013

Three weeks to read, three weeks to recover!

Epic. A classic on a par with War and Peace (yes, really), which was what the Author read three times during his over 1,000 days at the front during WWII!

To get a taste of this, there are a series of dramatizations of small parts on the BBC website, with Brannagh etc starring which are excellent in and of themselves. Back-story of Grossman and this book are fascinating too.

I began thinking I'd NEVER finish it, and was devastated when it ended!
