Praise

“Read it, and rejoice that the twentieth century has produced so thoughtful and so profound a literary humanist . . . [It] provides us with some of the most troubling and occasionally uplifting examinations of the human heart to be found in contemporary literature. A novel for all time.” —THE WASHINGTON POST
 
“The greatest Russian novel of the twentieth century . . . Life and Fate will continue to dazzle and inspire—as unerring a moral guide today as it was fifty years ago.” —FOREIGN POLICY
 
Life and Fate is a testament to the strength of character that terrorized human souls are capable of attaining. It is a noble book.” —THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
 
“[One of the] most ambitious novels of the twentieth century . . . To call Life and Fate a twentieth-century War and Peace hardly does justice to its startling blend of taboo-breaking historical investigation, profound philosophical thought, and literary innovation . . . Grossman sought to capture the scale and the ethical and literary challenge of unprecedented human suffering, while rooting the drama of Stalingrad and Stalinism in the timeless struggle for humanity and the individual soul.” —from the Introduction by Polly Jones
