Hi,

I read now "Arkhipelag GULAG" by Solzhenitsyn. It is a great book both as a historic study and a literary work of art.

I would recommend this book to anyone.

Alexey

interesting - i remember solshenitsyn lived in connecticut for a while after he defected.

he was a huge celebrity for a while - though very much 'kept away from the press'

- interesting. i'll check it out.
