(From the publisher):
is a daring and acerbic analysis of the Soviet experience--one of the most subversive pieces of literature to have been written by a Soviet writer.
Ivan Grigoryevich returns to Russia after thirty years in the gulag. After short and unsatisfying visits to familiar places and persons in Moscow and Leningrad, he settles in a southern provincial town where he briefly establishes a new life with a war widow. Eventually, however, Ivan returns to his boyhood home, where he finally comes to terms with the inhumanity of the Russian regime.
