Vasily Grossman

VASILY GROSSMAN (1905-1964) has been called "the only example, or at least the most significant one, of an established and leading Soviet writer changing his spots completely. The slave in him died, and a free man arose." He covered WWII as a correspondent, creating some of the most impressive and literary reporting on the war. His novel, Life and Fate, was a masterful portrayal of all aspects of society under Stalin and was banned from publication throughout the Soviet era.
