The Solzhenitsyn Reader A reception was held to launch a new book, The Solzhenitsyn Reader: New and Essential Writings, 1947-2005, published by Intercollegiate Studies Institute Books. This collection contains in one volume a representative selection of Nobel laureate Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s works. More than one-quarter of the material had never before appeared in English. The author’s sons Ignat and Stephan Solzhenitsyn prepared many of the new translations themselves. Edward Ericson and Daniel Mahoney edited the book. They talked about Solzhenitsyn’s work and his influence in the world over the past fifty years. They also talked about Solzhenitsyn’s writings from the book, arguing that Mr. Solzhenitsyn’s work is largely misrepresented in the United States, and discussed what Russia is like today. They also responded to audience members' questions. close
