August 1914 - SOLZHENITSYN, AlexanderBook Club Associates, 1973, Hardback ..
Condition: Very Good
Translated by Michael Glenny. This is the work which Solzhenitsyn has described as having long been 'the chief artistic design of my life'. August 1914 is the first of a series of interlinked novels whose grand theme is the growing pains of modern Russia. Its first publication is a literary event of world-wide importance. Using the techniques of non-fiction inside a fictional framework, Solzhenitsyn has produced a masterpiece that grips both ways. August 1914 is a triumph of historical reconstruction as well as of the creative imagination. Every page of it glows with the author's love of his country and with deep concern for ordinary men and women.
