London, UK: BCA, 1976. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 5.75 X 8.75. H/B 256 pages, condition is very good In his new book, Alexander Solzhenitsyn introduces the central character of his projected multi-volume account of Russian revolutionary history, begun with August 1914-Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. With incomparable knowledge of the events and people, Solzhenitsyn explores and clarifies the crucial years 1914-17 and draws a compelling psychological portrait of the man who was the architect of the Revolution. Lenin in Zurich chronicles Lenin's frustrating exile in Switzerland, from his arrest in Cracow and subsequent flight to Zurich at the outbreak of World War I to his departure for Russia in 1917 in a sealed train protected by the German government, years in which Lenin stood alone, without support from the deeply divided European Socialist movement and isolated from his fellow revolutionaries. Solzhenitsyn examines the private man as well as the familiar public figure, concentrating on facets of Lenin's personality and behaviour that have been glossed over in most books about him: his disillusionment and dejection over the future of the Bolshevik cause, his love for Inessa Armand, his preoccupation with the difficulties of subsidising the activities of his party and, most important, his secret safe-passage and financial arrangements with the Germans. The Lenin that emerges is not the distant, omniscient leader and theoretician but a man of human proportions with human needs, weaknesses, and concerns. Solzhenitsyn has set himself the task of establishing the truth of Russia's early revolutionary years and of probing the character of the man who made such an indelible impact on his country's fate. Lenin in Zurich fulfils the challenge of this task, reaffirming once again Solzhenitsyn's remarkable vision and his vital place in world literature., BCA, 1976, New York, NY Arcade Publishing, 1995.

Singer immigrated from Poland in 1935, leaving behind a wife and a five-year-old son. Mother and son, in an attempt to escape war-torn Europe, moved to the Soviet Union, were later exiled to Turkey, and eventually settled in Israel. Zamir grew up on a kibbutz, far removed from the Jewish New York experiences of his father. Twenty years later, a reunion of sorts occurred in New York. From that difficult time grew a strong bond that enriched both their lives in unexpected ways. Zamir's memoir is a testimony to the sweeping power of forgiveness and repentance. Zamir translated all of his father's works into Hebrew, accompanied him to Sweden for the Nobel Prize ceremonies, and grew to appreciate and honor his father's creative genius. Zamir's skill as a journalist shines; his memoir is beautifully written, terse, yet rich in detail. The journey, of course, leads to a fuller understanding of Singer as a writer, but we will remember the trip. Zamir and Singer didn't meet again until the mid-1950s, when Zamir, a radical Zionist, traveled to the U.S. Zamir's account of their conflictful reunion and patient forging of a loving relationship is poignant on many levels. His well-told story embraces the tragedy of the Holocaust, the traumatic disillusionment with the Soviet Union once Stalin's horrors were revealed, and the courageous struggles of Israel, but what emerges most clearly and memorably is his portrait of Singer. Zamir came to love and revere his mystical, egocentric, and immensely talented father and even grew to understand why his father was such a "Jewish Casanova." He also translated his father's books into Hebrew. As he recounts his compelling conversations with his father, Zamir ponders Singer's belief in demons and ghosts and celebrates his endless curiosity, disciplined writing process, love of the Yiddish language, and great charm. Zamir's warm and vivid portrait proves that good writing runs in the Singer family., Arcade Publishing, 1995., Hay House India, 2010. Softcover.

Russian writer/moralist Alexander Solzhenitsyn is not pleased about this biography that draws on interviews with his first wife. Nonetheless, British novelist D. M. Thomas views Solzhenitsyn throughout with sympathy, depicting a difficult but admirable man as important for his role in the struggle against Soviet totalitarianism as for the artistry of his fiction. The final chapters, on Solzhenitsyn's return home in 1994 after 20 years in exile, show "the ultimate dissident" still alone, disdained as old-fashioned and irrelevant in the new Russia. Thomas writes with a lyrical soulfulness that underscores his sense of connection to Russian artists. Product Description: Alexander Solzhenitsyn is not only the story of a toweringly influential writer, but also the history of Russia itself. Always framing this biography in the context of the historical times, D.M. Thomas depicts Solzhenitsyn's epic struggles against Soviet censorship and oppression and chronicles his years of imprisonment and subsequent exile. This rare, controversial combination of exhaustive research and novelistic style paints a deeply affecting portrait both of the intricate relationship between Solzhenitsyn's life and his art, as well as of the cruelty, passion, and chaos that have characterized Russian history over the last century. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. <br/><br/> <br/><br/>, St Martins Pr, 1998, New Delhi, India: Penguin, 2005. ‘The ancient whore, the handmaiden of dimly remembered Hindu kings, the courtesan of Mughal emperors? the ‘Paris of the East?
