Vasily Grossman was a writer of uniue genius a great war correspondent and an even greater novelist Earlier this year I read Life and Fate a panoramic novel set in the Second World War I don t think I ve ever been as overwhelmed by a work of fiction at least not since I read Dostoevsky s Crime and Punishment It s an astonishing tour de force a description of people and places and events delivered with freshness and stunning insight Even before I finished I offered the following comment As a novel it is also intensely onest making no allowances for the ideological shibboleths of What She Saw (Conard County his day soonest that the book was arrested yes arrested by the KGB in the early 1960s Grossman was subseuently summoned to the office of Mikhail Suslov the chief ideologue of the Khrushchev and Brezhnev years who told Rivals Break (Sharpe Donovan him that the book could not be published for another two or threeundred years an act of extreme censorship coupled with a paradoxical recognition of its lasting importance Fortunately a copy of the manuscript was smuggled out to the West where it was published and Namen-Und Sach-Register Zum Jahresbericht �ber Die Fortschritte in Der Lehre Von Den Pathogenen Mikroorganismen Umfassend Bacterien, Pilze Und Protozo�n hailed as a work of geniusSadly Grossman was unable to enjoyis literary triumph Soft Focus he died of stomach cancer in Moscow in 1964 At the point ofis death Alien Chastity Belt head no reason to suppose that Suslov s prediction was not true that it would take two centuries for Faker his great work to emerge from the ideological shadows Bute was already working on another novel a novel that could not ave been published in the old Soviet Union in two millennia never mind two centuries This is Everything Flows which I finished today in one feverish sitting stopping only to top up my tea from the samovar Yes Everything Flows is a novel unfinished at the time of the author s death but it s also a kind of testament a political and philosophical indictment not just of the moral corruption of communism but of Russia itself of that dark place in the Russian soul that forever eschews freedom in favour of slavery The criticism is trenchant Life and Fate could be taken in large part as a demolition of Stalinism an altogether onest testament that Khrushchev s Secret Speech But Everything Flows goes deeper it goes so far as Lenin still sleeping away in Red Suare the supreme icon of national servitude For a moment for the briefest of seasons in the spring of 1917 Russia scented freedom The path lay open Russia chose Lenin who came not to liberate the country but to refine and amplify the most regressive features of its HIPPO IN THE GARDEN history And so it was that Lenin s obsession with revolutionis fanatical faith in the truth of Marxism and the absolute intolerance of any dissent all led Spinal Trauma him to advanceugely the development of the Russia Shadow (New Species, heated with all of 細味人生100篇 his fanatical soulDid Lenin ever imagine the true conseuences ofis revolution Did The Gathering (Darkness Rising, he ever imagine that it would not simply be a matter of Russia now leading the way rather than asad been predicted following behind a socialist Europe Did MongoDB he ever imagine that whatis revolution would liberate was Russian slavery itself that Chastity his revolution would enable Russian slavery to spread beyond the confines of Russia to become a torch lighting a new path forumanity Russian Experiential Learning history paradoxically went into reverse Stalin uickened the process taking it as far as it would go substituting freedom with the most abject forms of state worship something thatad not been seen since the days of Ivan the Terrible By the 1930s the time of collectivisation the time of the Terror Famine the time when the "State Deliberately Starved Millions Of Its Own "deliberately starved millions of its own to death

to the camps as a young mane returns thirty years later a ghost from the past a Abortion, Choice, and Contemporary Fiction husk of a ruined life Stalin is dead but thereas been no proper reckoning there never will be a reckoning Such reckoning as there is comes only as an act of moral and istorical reflection There are those that Grigorivich left behind like is cousin Nikolay a mediocrity who prospered in a time of mediocrity and bad faith This ghost is not entirely welcome neither by Nikolay nor by is wife both of whom remained free insofar as freedom involved all sorts of shabby compromises This is a theme this guilt come resentment that Solzhenitsyn was to take up in is a theme this guilt come resentment that Solzhenitsyn was to take up in Ward These are the little people the beetle people who prospered at the expense of those far talented who died or disappearedThe novel ranges over some of the tragedy looked at in simple uman as well as grand Big Little Man historical terms There is the tragedy of the Terror Famine told by Anna Sergeyevna Grigorivich s lover full of guilt for the part she played How the kulaks suffered In order to kill them it was necessary to declare that the kulaks are notuman beings Just as the Germans

said that the

first witnesses of the conseuences of the Holocaust He published The Hell of Treblinka in Russia the first journalistic account of a German death camp in any language He even published a non fictional account of World War II called A Writer at War Vasily Grossman with the Red Army from the Russian point of viewButis masterpiece undeniably is Life and Fate which was completed in 1960 Life and Fate eventually after its publication was termed as War and Peace of this century the most complete portrait of Stalinist Russia we are ever likely to Canadian Art, Volume 1 (A-F) have The manuscript of Life And Fate was confiscated by the KGB in 1961 Not even one scrap of paper was spared during confiscation But as luck wouldave it Vladimir Voinovich a well known Russian satirist obtained a copy of the manuscript somehow copied it on a microfilm and smuggled it out of Russia to the West Everything Flows loosely follows a character named Ivan Grigoryevich who was sent to the Gulags at the Counter-Amores height of Stalinist purges 30 years later after the death of Stalin most of the prisoners were released citing the detached reason that they were all wrongfully imprisoned Ivan s journey to rediscoveris lost years in the free state is very disturbing Grossman dwells on submission to state terror by its people than on Ivan s journey though The reasons put forth are very disconcerting and actually makes one think about the possibility of something like this Dancing at Armageddon happening again in any corner of the modern world I am not much into making people read what I feel is great but in this case I would urge every book lover to read the much under appreciated works of Vasily Grossman These are truly life changing books Please read them This is a brave and
