This book tells the story of two Muscovites, Lev and Svetlana, whose love survived the war of 1941-45 and, afterwards, Lev's incarceration in one of Stalin's most notorious labour camps. For 14 years they exchanged letters - Lev's beautifully written, uncensored and smuggled from the Gulag; Svetlana's a testament to constancy and hope from a grim post-war Moscow. Using their correspondence - the largest cache of Gulag letters ever found - Figes has reconstructed a story of love's triumph over adversity.
