I bought this yesterday from the Friends of Antioch Public Library book sale room for a quarter.

c. 1963 -- The complete unexpurgated translation by Ronald Hingley and Max Hayward -- Introduction by Max Hayward and Leopold Lebedz
Front Cover: The most powerful novel ever to come out of the Soviet Union!!!!

Back Cover: The most sensational publishing event of the year! The terrifying story of an almost unbelievable man-made hell -- the Soviet work camps -- and of one man's heroic struggle to survive in the face of the most determined efforts to destroy him -- a scathing indictment of Communist tyranny that has shaken the whole Soviet world. A shattering portrait of life inside Stalinist Russia -- a novel you will never forget!

More revealing than Doctor Zhivago! A novel so graphic and so horrifyingly real that you will always remember it as one of the most harrowing experiences of your life. All the brutal language, the terror and the tragic beauty of the Russian original in a brilliant, moving translation. Special Note: This edition not "authorized" by Moscow nor is it the so-called "authorized" translation serialized in "Moscow News" published by the Soviet Foreign Ministry.
