The Storm

Ilya Ehrenburg – The Storm

I have finally finished The Storm, a very good book that took me an unusually long time to get through.  This is a very well-written socialist realist novel, indeed at times it is hard to believe this book ever had a place in the Stalinist cannon.  A good book.

This is the 1948 Foreign Language Publishing House edition, and not in the standard FLPH format.  This edition is larger, with a leatherette spine and faux marbled boards.

It once belonged to Gofsky,

and has this great inscription.
