Category:

Place/Publisher/Date:
London, Harvill, 2003..

Description:
Translated from the Polish by Danusia Stok. First edition; 8vo; original cloth boards and dust jacket. This powerful, strangely beautiful book, is a blend of adventure, observation, reflection and philosophical musing. Wilk a Polish journalist long fascinated by Russia travelled through its vastness and eventually reached the Solovetski Islands in the White Sea, near the Arctic Circle. The islands are the cradle of the Orthodox Church in the north, but also the home of the oldest political prison in Russia, which the Soviets turned into the first labour camp in Russia. Fine in fine dust jacket. Price £20.00
