Reviews
"Compelling and fascinating. . . The title of this book cannot accurately convey its cumulative power." --Boston Book Review

"Soviet history in a new key. . . A rare and extraordinary portrait of Soviet society in a critical decade, comprising fear, bravery, bathos, tragedy, and even humor--in sum, the broad range of human responses to inhumanity." --Kirkus Reviews

"Eloquent. . . . An impressive collection of personal diaries written in the Soviet Union during the harshest years of Joseph Stalin's rule." --Wilson Quarterly
