One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich

by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

4.4/5

In the madness of World War II, a dutiful Russian soldier is wrongfully convicted of treason and sentenced to ten years in a Siberian labor camp. So begins this masterpiece of modern Russian fiction, a harrowing account of a man who has conceded to all things evil with dignity and strength.

“How can you expect a man who's warm to understand a man who's cold?”
