Aleksandr Isaevich Solzhenitsyn

In the First Circle

€ 20.95

A brilliant mathematician finds himself locked in a Moscow prison filled with the countrys brightest mindsa setting Solzhenitsyn allegorically modeled after Dantes first circle of hell. After the Soviet secret police intercept a call to the American embassy made by a Russian minister who promises to deliver secrets about the Soviet nuclear program, the prisoners are charged with sleuthing out the callers identity. They must choose whether to aid Stalins repressive stateor refuse and accept transfer to the Siberian Gulags . . . and almost certain death. First written between 1955 and 1958, In the First Circle is Solzhenitsyns fiction masterpiece. In order to pass through Soviet censors, as much as 25% of the novel was cut before it was first published in a hastily translated English edition in 1968. Even in its diminished form, the novel was hailed as a classic by the New York Times, with Solzhenitsyn decreed an equal to Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky. Solzhenitsyn was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature a year later. Now Solzhenitsyns most trusted translator, Harry Willetts, has produced the first definitive English edition.
