Check out this great listen on Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn’s startling book led, almost 30 years later, to Glasnost, Perestroika, and the "Fall of the Wall". One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich brilliantly portrays a single day, any day, in the life of a single Russia. Solzhenitsyn shared his perspective throughout the slight insinuations scattered through the plot. He revealed to the world the injustices within his homeland and the human rights violations within Stalinist camps. One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich is Solzhenitsyn's tribute to those prisoners and their families, dead or alive.
