It is estimated that some three million people died in the Soviet forced-labour camps of Kolyma, in the northeastern area of Siberia. Shalamov himself spent seventeen years there, and in these stories he vividly captures the lives of ordinary people caught up in terrible circumstances, whose hopes and plans extended to further than a few hours. This new enlarged edition combines two collections previously published in the United States as Kolyma Tales and Graphite. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.… (mais)

I dare you to find a literary genre more depressing than prison literature – go on, think about it for a bit, I'll wait. Kolyma Tales is a collection of short stories set in the various mines, dormitories, and work camps that made up the vast Siberian "human sewage disposal system" that Alexander Solzhenitsyn so famously chronicled in The Gulag Archipelago. Based on an unimaginable seventeen years of the author's own personal experience with the Gulag system, this is an unforgettably bleak look at one of the absolute worst places in the world. One of the most striking things about the stories here is the nearly complete absence of moralizing, which is very different from Solzenitsyn's angry polemics; the icy detachment of the author as he recounts these horrific conditions and even more horrific human beings who live in such a wasteland of the spirit is subtly unsettling in a way that's almost impossible to describe but unforgettable as you're reading it. Think of the descriptive fatalism of Jack London's To Build a Fire over and over again, with scores of protagonists shuffling through endless permutations of fellow prisoners and guards whose humanity has been gradually frozen out of them over decades of isolation in a hellish world that the American prison system is unfortunately trying to recreate right here at home. I would recommend detoxing with Harry Potter or something after this; it's pretty soul-crushing. ( )

Kolyma Tales was my first used book purchase via Amazon. (I feel obligated to honor our benefactor at every turn now. I even touch my breast when I say Amazon.)

Emerging from a blue period, I truly had no idea how beautiful this harrowing account would be. I don't detect any tension between the sublime and Kolyma. Imre Kertész has taught me well. It is chance, it is human. Survival simply wasn't possible. Those that did emerge, were stripped of something. A loss occurred. Kolyma is a protean creation: it is a novel, a collection, a testament, an indictment, a discarded path towards something which couldn't be Hope.

Hungry men will always defend justice furiously (if they are not too hungry or too exhausted).

Consider my dilemma, I was so moved by this book over the last few days yet the events depicted are so alien and hostile as to defy comment. I kept reading, finding myself strangely hungry. I was spared the standard Kolyma dream of loaves of rye bread. Even while quaffing ale, I thought about those that drank medical alcohol at the expense of their patients. I thought repeatedly about the carpenter's puppy: that's all I can say about that particular anecdote. There are always foot rags to be adjusted, heels to be scratched time in the infirmary. There are innumerable others. I give Kolyma Tales my highest recommendation. ( )

Shalamov spent 17 years n the Soviet forced-labor camps of kolyma, and in these stories he vividly captures the lives of ordinary people caught up in terrible circumstances, their hopes and plans extending no further than a few hours.

Excellent, excellent book. This puts Alexander Solzhenitsyn almost to shame with the quality of the prose and the forthrightness of the message. 500 pages of short stories about the Siberian camps for political and criminal prisoners told in a way that will utterly amaze even the most stoic of readers. Damn good! ( )

Je kunt kniesoren dat de zware en dikke verzamelband, met al zijn doublures en het voorbijgaan aan iedere chronologie, te veel van het goede is; maar niemand is verplicht om de verhalen van A tot Z te lezen. Je kunt opmerken dat uitgeverij De Bezige Bij zo snel mogelijk moet komen met een betaalbare en handzame paperback (waarin dan meteen de meer dan dertig zetfouten gecorrigeerd kunnen worden). Maar het doet allemaal niets af aan het monumentale karakter van deze uitgave. Berichten uit Kolyma is een gedenkteken in woorden voor de miljoenen naamloze slachtoffers van de Goelag. En wat voor woorden!

Het belang van Sjalamovs verzamelde Berichten uit Kolyma kan moeilijk worden overschat. Dat geldt voor het historische belang als een van de weinige uitvoerige getuigenissen van een overlever. En voor het literaire belang als een documentair prozawerk waarin met de allergrootste precisie wordt verhaald hoe mensen leven op de bodem van de hel. Dieren, zo stelt Sjalamov meer dan eens vast, 'zijn uit beter materiaal gemaakt': onder omstandigheden als die in Kolyma sterven ze gewoon. Mensen kun je vernederen, vertrappen, folteren, beroven, afjakkeren, ze zullen zich met alle listen en lagen aan de laatste broodkruimel blijven vastklampen. Tot ook zij door de bodem zakken. De permafrost van Kolyma bewaart de lijken van honderdduizenden gevangenen.
