This is a major biography of the enigmatic and elusive writer. The political reactionary who spoke out against Communism now lives in seclusion, having withdrawn from Western culture and materialism.
His faith has always deeply informed his literary and artistic approach and his response to the excesses of modern materialism. On the spiritual, cultural, and socio-political level, his writings have much to teach the world. Based on personal interviews with Solzhenitsyn and his family, this book provides a profoundly fascinating insight into a towering literary and political figure.
