Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's "March 1917: The Red Wheel, Node III, Book 1"
The University of Notre Dame Press has just published my translation of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's March 1917: The Red Wheel, Node III, Book 1. This is the third of eight volumes that make up Solzhenitsyn's sweeping masterpiece of historical fiction covering World War I, the two revolutions of 1917, and their aftermath in 1918.
The translation is the first volume to appear in a major, ongoing project to translate and publish all of Solzhenitsyn's untranslated works. I will be translating the next three volumes as well, with the next scheduled for publication in a year's time.
It is a great privilege to be contributing to the opus of an author whose works such as One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich and First Circle were such an inspiration to me decades ago, at the very beginning of my love affair with Russian literature.
