And quiet flows the Don, Deel 1
A.A. Knopf, 1 jan. 1934 - 755 pagina's
This story of a group of Cossacks living along the Don river--a primitive, virile, and unbelievably brutal people--centers about Gregor Melekhov, a young Cossack with Turkish blood in his veins. His home life, his unhappy marriage and impassioned love affair, and his military adventures and experiences in the Revolution are told with frank naturalism, from a Bolshevik point of view. Host of other characters crowd the pages of a powerful novel of war and revolution.
