By the author of Life and Fate, now a major Radio 4 drama starring Kenneth Branagh.

Vasily Grossman is widely recognized as one of the outstanding literary figures of the twentieth century. The short fiction collected here – satire, comedy, tragedy and pure narrative – illustrate the remarkable breadth of his work, and demonstrate all the bold intelligence, delicate irony and extraordinary vividness for which he has become known.

In addition to the eleven stories, this volume includes the complete text of ‘The Hell of Treblinka’, one of the first descriptions of a Nazi extermination camp; a powerful and harrowing piece of journalism written only weeks after the camp was dissolved.

Beautifully illuminated by Robert Chandler’s introductions and endnotes, with photographs from the family archive, and an Afterword by Grossman’s stepson, Fyodor Guber.
