One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich

by Alexander Solzhenitsyn, translated by Ralph Parker - £7.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2000)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141184746 | ISBN 10: 0141184744

This brutal, shattering glimpse of the fate of millions of Russians under Stalin shook Russia and shocked the world when it first appeared. Discover the importance of a piece of bread or an extra bowl of soup, the incredible luxury of a book, the ingenious possibilities of a nail, a piece of string or a single match in a world where survival is all. Here safety, warmth and food are the first objectives.
 
Reading it, you enter a world of incarceration, brutality, hard manual labour and freezing cold - and participate in the struggle of men to survive both the terrible rigours of nature and the inhumanity of the system that defines their conditions of life.
