About this product
- Description' Everything Flows is as important a vel as anything written by Solzhenitsyn, and Robert Chandler's superb translation makes it a joy to read' - Antony Beevor. Ivan Grigoryevich has been in the Gulag for thirty years. Released after Stalin's death, he finds that the years of terror have imposed a collective moral slavery. He must struggle to find a place for himself in an unfamiliar world. Grossman tells the stories of those people entwined with Ivan's fate: his cousin Nikolay, a scientist who never let his conscience interfere with his career, Pinegin, the informer who had Ivan sent to the camps and Anna Sergeyevna, Ivan's lover, who tells of her involvement as an activist in the Terror famine of 1932-3. Everything Flows is Vasily Grossman's final testament, written after the Soviet authorities suppressed Life and Fate . 'Vasily Grossman is the Tolstoy of the USSR' - Martin Amis.
