One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich (Signet Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the madness of World War II, a dutiful Russian soldier is wrongfully convicted of treason and sentenced to ten years in a Siberian labor camp. So begins this masterpiece of modern Russian fiction, a harrowing account of a man who has conceded to all things evil with dignity and strength. 

First published in 1962, it is considered one of the most significant works ever to emerge from Soviet Russia. Illuminating a dark chapter in Russian history, Ivan Denisovich is at once a graphic picture of work camp life and a moving tribute to man’s will to prevail over relentless dehumanization.

Synopsis:

The first published novel of controversial Nobel Prize winning author Alexander Solzhenitsyn- now in trade paperback.
