ND Press publishes Solzhenitsyn memoir

Notre Dame Press published the first English translation of the Nobel Prize-winning Russian writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s memoir Between Two Millstones, Book 1: Sketches of Exile, 1974–1978. Widely regarded as one of the most important authors of the 20th century, Solzhenitsyn won the Nobel for literature in 1970, and his 1973 masterpiece The Gulag Archipelago exposed the system of forced labor camps in the Soviet Union. His son, Ignat, a renowned conductor and pianist, spoke at a Notre Dame conference to celebrate the book’s launch.
