A major work by one of our greatest living historians. . . an immense achievement - Jane Graham, Big Issue Astonishing. . . Like the great Russian novels, these testimonials ring with emotional truth - Caroline Moorehead, Guardian Extraordinary stories about what it was like to be a Soviet child during the upheaval and horror of the Second World War, from bel Laureate Svetlana Alexievich What did it mean to grow up in the Soviet Union during the Second World War? In the late 1970s, Svetlana Alexievich started interviewing people who had experienced war as children, the generation that survived and had to live with the trauma that would forever change the course of the Russian nation. With remarkable care and empathy, Alexievich gives voice to those whose stories are lost in the official narratives, uncovering a powerful, hidden history of one of the most important events of the twentieth century. Published to great acclaim in the USSR in 1985 and now available in English for the first time, this masterpiece offers a kaleidoscopic portrait of the human consequences of the war - and an extraordinary chronicle of the Russian soul.

Her works include The Unwomanly Face of War (1985), Last Witnesses (1985), Boys in Zinc (1991), Chernobyl Prayer (1997) and Second-Hand Time (2013). She has won many international awards, including the 2015 bel Prize in Literature for her polyphonic writings, a monument to suffering and courage in our time .
