One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Ralph Parker My translation had an odd moment towards the end where the writing switches into first person every couple of sentences. Very odd! But apart from that this is magic writing. It is distressing and freezing and remarkable. Solzhenitsyn makes minutiae vital and revealing.
