With Tolstoyan narrative power and the emotional grandeur of Doctor Zhivago, Generations of Winter is the story of a Russian family struggling to survive amid the convulsions of the Stalin era. These men and women, woven together with such actual figures as Joseph Stalin and Laventry Beria, populate this triumphantly moving novel by one of the most acclaimed writers of the Soviet diaspora. Overflowing with passion and cruelty, heroism and sorrow, Generations of Winter is a masterpiece in the tradition of the greatest nineteenth century Russian novels.
"Aksyonov has ambitiously set out to challenge Tolstoy on his own ground...A riveting and profoundly moral work."--The Wall Street Journal
