A grim and jagged dystopian novel of the early Soviet Union, The Foundation Pit is a scathing indictment of the brutal and anti-intellectual soviet apparatchiki, their policy of forced collectivization, and the mindlessness of "New Soviet Man" rhetoric.

From the Back Cover:

The Foundation Pit portrays a group of workmen and local bureaucrats engaged in digging the foundation pit for what is to become a grand 'general' building where all the town's inhabitants will live happily and 'in silence.'
