Spy Car Posted August 4, 2008 Share Posted August 4, 2008 I'm very sad to learn of the passing of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. While I hardly saw eye-to-eye with him on many points, he was also one of my most beloved twentieth century authors and thinkers. The quality of his mind was extraordinary, as was his courage in facing Soviet oppression. His novel Cancer Ward hast to be on a short-list of my favorite works of serious fiction. He was a monumental intellectual figute and he will be sadly missed. Bill Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
