Product Description

This volume of writings by the author of Life and Fate provides new insight into the life and work of this extraordinary writer. The stories range from Grossman's first success, 'In the Town of Berdichey,' a piercing reckoning with the cost of war, to such haunting later works as 'Mama,' based on the life of a girl who was adopted at the height of the Great Terror by the head of the NKVD and packed off to an orphanage after her father's downfall. Also included is the complete text of Grossman's harrowing report from Treblinka, one of the first anatomies of the workings of a death camp; 'The Sistine Madonna,' a reflection on art and atrocity; as well as two heartbreaking letters that Grossman wrote to his mother after her death at the hands of the Nazis and carried with him for the rest of his life. Notes, Further Reading, Contributors. 373p.
