'Everything Flows is as important a novel 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

Review:

"...a richly-woven narrative of historical events and individual destinies -- a masterpiece of pain, moral outrage and gallows humour. Grossman has become recognised not only as one of the great war novelists of all time but also as one of the first and most important of witnesses to the defence of Stalingrad, the fall of Berlin, the consequences of the Holocaust"-- Business Standard

"After he submitted his masterful World War II novel Life and Fate to a publisher in 1960, the KGB confiscated the manuscript, his notes and even his typewriter (the book was later smuggled out of the country and printed in 1974). But this didn't quiet Grossman, whose indictments of Stalinist Russia were at least as damning as those of George Orwell and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. Understandably bitter over the suppression of his work, the author worked on Everything Flows--a shorter, but even more eviscerating, meditation on the monstrous results of the Soviet experiment--until his death from cancer in 1964. This new translation brings his searing vision to light... Fortunately, the KGB couldn't keep Grossman's books under wraps forever. His testament stands as a fitting tribute to the millions of voices that were prematurely silenced."--Drew Toal, Time Out New York

"brilliant and courageous novel...readers will find hope in the narrator's uncommon capacity to forgive and accept."-- Library Journal

"Few novels confront human suffering on as massive a scale as this one....Grossman's individual by individual portrayal of anguish gives readers a heartrending glimpse of the incomprehensible. "-- Publishers Weekly

"This courageous novel... is a compelling restatement of some old truths about the fundamental and ineluctable nature of freedom."--New & Noteworthy, New York Times

Book Description:

Translated into English for the first time, this is a fearless epic from one of the great writers of the twentieth century
