Auteur: Serge, Victor
Titel: Men in prison
Ironically, Serge returned to writing upon his release from a GPU prison in Soviet Russia, where he was arrested as an anti-Stalinist subversive in 1928. He completed Men in Prison (and two other novels) in "semi-captivity" before he was rearrested and deported to the Gulag in 1933. Serge’s classic prison novel has been compared to Dostoyevsky’s 'House of the Dead', Koestler’s 'Spanish Testament', Genet’s 'Miracle of the Rose', and Solzhenitsyn’s 'One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch' both for its authenticity and its artistic achievement. This edition features a substantial new introduction by translator Richard Greeman, situating the work in Serge’s life and times.
