<[>In 1962, the Soviet literary magazine Novy Mir published a short novel by an unknown writer named Solzhenitsyn. Within 24 hours, all 95,000 copies of the magazine containing this story were sold out. Within a week, Solzhenitsyn was no longer an obscure math teacher, but an international celebrity. Publication of the book split the Communist hierarchy, and it was Premier Khrushchev himself who read the book and personally allowed its publication.

Classic And Compelling
A masterful tale of Stalinist Russia, told in a very convincing tone. The tale itself is brilliant, concisely conveying the horrors of camp life in a Soviet political prison. The narrator makes a few pronunciation mistakes, but is generally very faithful to the spirit of the story and its dozen or so characters.

A MAN WHO IS WARM CAN NOT UNDERSTAND,
A MAN WHO IS FREEZING
This should be required reading in high school. I am pretty sure it is in some college courses. While it is fairly short, it does start to wane, half way through. I know it is sacrilege not to love this classic, but that is the type of ahole I am. Read it for the knowledge, just don't expect to love it.
Muller was one of the best
