Review:

"Perhaps the most famous work of fiction dealing directly with the disease" (Guardian)

"And what does Solzhenitsyn say about cancer? How does he reach me, in Australia, with his Russian book? He shows me something valuable that I discovered during my own medical treatment. The people who are involved in cancer -- the sufferer, the doctors, the nurses, the orderlies -- are often occupied less with the cancer than with each other. There are small societies of patients and medical workers in a hospital ward, and in those societies people share what they have: their love and resentment, their stories and observations." (Brenda Walker The Australian)

"Solzhenitsyn was a great writer as the result of the collision of a particular personality and an awesome subject matter" (Henry Porter Observer)

"Solzhenitsyn is a man of genius...it is a privilege to be Solzhenitsyn’s contemporary" (Observer)

"There has been no such analysis of the corrupting power of the police state in Soviet literature" (Listener)
