Suppressed by the KGB, Life and Fate is a rich and vivid account of what the Second World War meant to the Soviet Union.

On its completion in 1960, Life and Fate was suppressed by the KGB. Twenty years later, the novel was smuggled out of the Soviet Union on microfilm. At the centre of this epic novel looms the battle of Stalingrad. Within a world torn apart by ideological tyranny and war, Grossman’s characters must work out their destinies. Chief among these are the members of the Shaposhnikov family – Lyudmila, a mother destroyed by grief for her dead son; Viktor, her scientist-husband who falls victim to anti-semitism; and Yevgenia, forced to choose between her love for the courageous tank-commander Novikov and her duty to her former husband. Life and Fate is one of the great Russian novels of the 20th century, and the richest and most vivid account there is of what the Second World War meant to the Soviet Union.

About the Author:

Vasily Grossman was born in 1905 in the Ukraine. During the Second World War he worked on the Red Star and was the first journalist in any language to report on the death camps. A year after completion of Life and Fate, KGB agents arrived at his house with orders to confiscate the manuscript. However, a microfilm copy of the manuscript found its way to the West in the hands of Vladimir Voinovich. Vasily Grossman died in 1964.
