And quiet flows the Don, Deel 1
A.A. Knopf, 1 jan. 1934 - 755 pagina's

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.
