Kolyma Tales Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is estimated that some three million people died in the Soviet forced-labour camps of Kolyma, in the north-eastern area of Siberia. Shalamov himself spent seventeen years there, and in these stories he vividly captures the lives of ordinary people caught up in terrible circumstances, their hopes and plans extending no further than a few hours.

Synopsis:

This is a one-volume selection of the short stories of Varlam Shalamov.
