About the book:

At the centre of this epic novel, overshadowing the lives of its huge cast of Russian and German characters, looms the battle of Stalingrad. Within a world torn apart by ideological tyranny and war, Grossman's characters must work out their destinies. Reviews: "The humanity and grace with which Grossman reconstructs the tragic death of 350,000 people at Stalingrad recalls Tolstoy; the great sadness with which Grossman imbues discussions of solidarity, friendship, dignity recalls Dostoevsky; the gentleness and sensitivity with which Grossman eulogizes the simple life recalls Chekhov" IL GIORNO... "The richest and most vivid account to be found of what the Second World War meant to the Soviet Union... No more powerful war novel has come from any country for many years past" -H.T. WILLETTS, The Times... Life and Fate is undoubtedly one of the finest novels to emerge from the Soviet Union in its entire history, and deserves comparison with such works as Doctor Zhivago and The First Circle" -MICHAEL SCAMMELL... "Novels like The Red Wheel (Solzhenitsyn's cycle of novels beginning with August 1914) and Life and Fate eclipse almost all that passes for serious fiction in the West today" GEORGE STEINER
