Raise your hand if you love Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn!!! I sure do- am reading The Gulag Archipelago. He was the true voice of Russia...totally understand why they tried so hard to silence him...no one likes to hear the truth about themselves, especially when it's painful. He paints a picture, in black, of all the cruelty he witnessed in 20th century Russia. His dedication of the book tears your heart right out.
