Life and Fate by Vasily Grossman

Staff Pick

 

For years I promised myself I would read this book. When I did, I felt like a void had been filled. A novel about World War II's most important battle by one who was there, a searing indictment of Stalin written right under the dictator's moustache, its manuscript was considered a threat to the existence of the Soviet Union itself. Grossman didn't live to see it published. His moving, lyrical story of one family's survival during the 20th century's nadir, however, is a lasting testament to everything that great books are capable of doing. Do not deny yourself one of life's most singular experiences.
