I've gotten so enthusiastic about Aleksey Pisemsky that I wanted to let the members of this group know. Unfortunately, not a lot of his work has been translated, but his major novel A Thousand Souls has; I've written about it here:

And there's a complete list of his work here, showing all available translations:

Ooooh - this is very tempting. And I'm not supposed to be buying books at the moment....

I just found a copy of Thousand Souls from a online bookseller, I had read it back in the 70's. I will probably read it after I finish Lenin on the Train.
I have just discovered Vassily Grossman. Are you familiar with his writings?
