Product Information

"The new edition of Solzhenitsyn's epic novel, "In the First Circle" captures better than any other work of fiction the quintessence of communist rule at its Stalinist peak: all-pervasive, paranoid, oppressive, incompetent, lethal. ... The longer text is deeper and darker."--The Economist
