Read full description of the books:
When 'Matryona's House', the first story in this superb collection by Russia's leading writer, appeared in the Soviet Union in 1963, it was seen as an allegory of the stubborn persistence of inherent Russian values despite all vicissitudes. 'An aIncident at Krechetova Station', published the same year, is set in 1941 during the worst period of the war. The terror of a nation in chaotic retreat is brilliantly conveyed in this powerful story of a fugitive from the front, doomed because he does not know that the city of Tsaritsyn has had its name changed to Stalingrad.
Every story here bears the mark of a master craftsman writing in the great classical tradition of Russian literature. The sixteen prose poems, products of a profound epigrammatic imagination, show an aspect of Solzhenitsyn's unrivalled talent unfamiliar to readers in the West. This is a book that no one who has been moved and excited by Solzhenitsyn's great novels can afford to miss.
