Life and Fate

24.95

A book judged so dangerous in the Soviet Union that not only the manuscript but the ribbons on which it had been typed were confiscated by the state, Life and Fate is an epic tale of World War II and a profound reckoning with the dark forces that dominated the twentieth century. 

Life and Fate juxtaposes bedrooms and snipers’ nests, scientific laboratories and the Gulag, taking us deep into the hearts and minds of characters ranging from a boy on his way to the gas chambers to Hitler and Stalin themselves. 

This novel of unsparing realism and visionary moral intensity is one of the supreme achievements of modern Russian literature.

Micah says: "Life and Fate is an unforgettable account of war and peace in Soviet Russia. Running throughout the book is a poignant theme of resistance against the orthodoxy of thought. Stalinist forces tried to erase this book's existence."
