Juneus One of the most important books I have ever read and as close to a memoir of Solzhenitsyn as one is likely to find. Not a book to just read but to read with purpose and,I believe, to gain an enhanced attachment to the freedom many of us take for granted. Its message will stay with me for the rest of my life. Not really an easy read.
