About this title

Synopsis:

A classic of socialist realism, Cement became a model for Soviet fiction in the decades following its publication in the early 1920s. Gleb, a soldier hero, returns from the revolution to a world in transition, as demonstrated by the reorganization of the local cement factory for the massive national effort. His wife, Dasha, is now a leader of the Women's Section of the Communist Pary, an activist in a society where women are suddenly men's equals. Gleb finds that he cannot easily pick up the threads of their old relationship or adjust to this new social order.

About the Author:

Fyodor Vasilievich Gladkov (1883-1958) was born into a peasant family in the village of Chenavka, in the district of Petrovsk. As a young man, he lived in Kuban, where he became involved in revolutionary activities. He was exiled from 1905-8.
