This is a paperback book titled "Cancer Ward" by Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Published by Bantam Books in 1969. 557 pages. Reading copy only. Includes his own words and world famous letters to the Congress of Soviet Writers.
Cancer Ward examines the relationship of a group of people in the cancer ward of a provincial Soviet hospital in 1955, two years after Stalin's death. We see them under normal circumstances, and also reexamined at the eleventh hour of illness. Together they represent a remarkable cross-section of contemporary Russian characters and attitudes. The experiences of the central character, Oleg Kostoglotov, closely reflect the author's own: Solzhenitsyn himself became a patient in a cancer ward in the mid-1950s, on his release from a labor camp, and later recovered. Translated by Nicholas Bethell and David Burg.
The book is in acceptable condition. There is considerable of the cover. Inside the pages are still tight, clean but very tanned. Looks like there may have been some foxing of bottom and back pages although the pages themselves don't really show that. There is soiling of page edges. A reading copy only.
