About this title:
" . . . some of the best of the enormous, mostly untranslated Gulag memoir literature." --Anne Applebaum, Literary Review (London)
" . . . probably the most gripping and detailed addtion to the famous fundamental work by Solzhenitsyn. This book should be read by everybody . . . " --The Spectator
"How extraordinary it is that compassion and tenderness may flourish in the cruellest conditions; how stubbornly and bravely people survive them. This is not a depressing book but an inspiriting and encouraging one." --Doris Lessing
Arrest, interrogation, imprisonment, trial and sentencing, transport, labor camps, internal exile, sometimes release, often followed by re-arrest and re-imprisonment--and, for those who outlived Stalin, eventual reprieve and rehabilitation--these are the outlines of the experiences recorded by 16 courageous Russian women whose moving testimonies, most of them written in secret and at great personal risk, are presented here.
About the Author: Simeon Vilensky, a former political prisoner, a writer, and a poet, is founder of Vozvrashchenie, an organization in Moscow dedicated to preserving and publishing testimonies of Stalin's victims and aiding camp survivors.
