[Translated by Jane Zielonko]
[Read by Stefan Rudnicki]

The best-known prose work by the winner of the 1980 Nobel Prize for Literature.

Written in the early 1950s, when Eastern Europe was in the grip of Stalinism and many Western intellectuals placed their hopes in the new order of the East, this classic work reveals in fascinating detail the often beguiling allure of totalitarian rule to people of all political beliefs and its frightening effects on the minds of those who embrace it.
