This novel depicts the lives of occupants of the gulag inmates in the Moscow suburbs. It is highly autobiographical. Many of the prisoners are scholars arrested under Article 58 in the penal code under Stalin's purges following World War ll. Unlike inhabitants of other gulags, they are adequately fed and enjoy good conditions; however, if they fall out of favor they could be shipped to Siberia. The novel has philosophical themes and multiple narratives that are a powerful argument for stoic integrity and humanism. Typical of Solzhenitsyn, it illustrates the predicament of maintaining dignity within a system designed to strip people of it.
This is a must have for any literature library and Solzhenitsyn fan. Thank you for looking
