      Pasternak very late in life--with the publication of "Doctor Zhivago," the award to it in of the Nobel Prize, its translation into dozens of languages and almost overpowering barrage of publicity in every kind of media. The editorial board of Novy Mir literary magazine claimed in an open letter that the book was a slanderous portrayal of the October Revolution "and the people who carried out the Revolution and built socialism in the Soviet Union".

Liberals comfortable with Western democratic values regard Mr. She is the only living descendant of Taurida, which is the former name of Crimea when the Ancient Greeks lived there.

      The process of dying, which should be dramatically sad, turns into a party. Ulitskaya structured this novel as a patchwork of episodes that at first glance seem unrelated. In the opinion of many authors, however, under Stalin it was easier to comprehend where writers stood, and in extreme cases the tyrant himself became a critic of a controversial author.

All else is swamped by Pharisaism. The result, predictably, was mass starvation and effective genocide that reduced the population of the Don Cossacks to half of the pre-WWI level by the time the drive for collectivization was over.

Pasternak was turning more and more to the translation of foreign classics. This great novel is a look at three generations of Soviet Muscovites, and it ponders the big issues of life and death. This was applied to workers, even in prison camps, who were too sick or too weak to meet their quotas; it also covers Ivan Denisovich's "crime" of allowing himself to be taken prisoner.
