Review:

"One of the greatest masterpieces of the twentieth century" (Times Literary Supplement)

"It is only a matter of time before Grossman is acknowledged as one of the great writers of the 20th century... Life and Fate is a book that demands to be talked about" (Guardian)

"Vasily Grossman's novel is burnt in my memory, not only by its huge canvas, its meditation on tyranny, and its dazzling description of war, but also because this is the novel that made me cry - not just a few leaked tears, but a full-scale sobbing episode - in Montpellier airport... Grossman lost his mother in a concentration camp. In Life and Fate, he writes with tenderness, and pain, not only of that experience but of what it is like to survive tyranny. A classic indeed" (Gillian Slovo Independent)

"A literary genius. His Life And Fate is rated by many as the finest Russian novel of the 20th century" (Mail on Sunday)

"One of the world's great war novels" (Independent on Sunday)
