Lucky Grossman

Vasily Grossman had been one of the principal voices of anti-Nazi resistance, a legendary journalist who spent 1000 days at the front during World War II. When he died in 1964, a month before the removal of Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, he had already been devastated by the efforts of the Soviet regime to delete him from history. The Road, a new collection of Grossman’s shorter prose that presents a retrospective of the writer’s career, is reviewed by BC Professor of Russian and English Maxim D. Shrayer in the Spring 2011 issue of the Jewish Review of Books Review (click on “Lucky Grossman” headline to see text).
