Grossman’s great moral reckoning with the crimes of Stalinism
Everything Flows is Vasily Grossman’s final testament, written after the Soviet authorities suppressed his masterpiece, Life and Fate. The main story is simple: released after thirty years in the Soviet camps, Ivan Grigoryevich must struggle to find a place for himself in an unfamiliar world. But in a novel that seeks to take in the whole tragedy of Soviet history, Ivan’s story is only one among many. — Penguin Random House, Inc.
Everything Flows is a richly-woven narrative of historical events and individual destinies—a masterpiece of pain, moral outrage and gallows humor. Grossman has become recognized not only as one of the great war novelists of all time but also as one of the first and most important of witnesses to the defense of Stalingrad, the fall of Berlin, the consequences of the Holocaust. — Business Standard
It is as eloquent a memorial to the anonymous little man in the Stalinist state as Dr. Zhivago is to the artistic spirit in post-Czarist Russia and The First Circle to the scientific intelligentsia. — The New York Times
