One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich
While not anywhere near as harrowing as The Gulag Archipelago, it remains a powerful work largely because of its simple, prosaic style. It's understated, simple, repetitive, and one is drawn into the worldview of the Gulag prisoner... simultaneous eternal stasis and perpetual motion with the subject trapped between them. Its deceptive simplicity is what makes it so powerful a few days after you finish it.
