Another Life and The House on the Embankment (European Classics) Paperback. Trifonov's novel tells the story of a group of Moscow friends who grow into adulthood against the backdrop of Soviet Russia from Stalin through to Brezhnev's time.
Another Life and The House on the Embankment (European Classics) Paperback. Trifonov uses two narrators, and their contrasting viewpoints make the betrayals and the corruptions necessary for individuals to survive in that time, especially poignant. The moral decay of the individual living in Soviet society and the use of history and truth as a football, are chilling.
Another Life" is the story of Olga, a woman suddenly widowed and attempting to grasp the memory of her brilliant, erratic husband and to understand their life together. Possessed with a passion for truth, able to appreciate how the past affects the present, he could not hope to flourish in a society where intrigue and moral compromise were the norm. A sharp, satirical portrait of an academic opportunist, "The House on the Embankment" is paradoxically laced with compassion and humor.
