The Whisperers: Private Life In Stalin

by Orlando Figes - £14.99  Penguin (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141013510 | ISBN 10: 0141013516

This is the story of the lives of ordinary people in Stalin's Russia: a world where everyone was afraid to talk and a society spoke in whispers, whether to protect friends and family - or to betray them. Where a junior worker might inform on their superior to get their job; a husband to get rid of a lover; a neighbour out of petty jelousy. Where living a double life became the norm and yet, somehow, a few defied the state.
Orlando Fige's phenomenal book gives a voice to these silent survivors for the first time.
