  • Dni i nochi [Days and nights] by Simonov, Konstantin
    Simonov, Konstantin
    Dni i nochi [Days and nights]

    First Edition

    Moskva: Sovetskij pisatel. 218 pages. "[Simonov's] most widely read novel is Days and Nights (1944), which deals with the courage of Soviet forces during the siege of Stalingrad. Simonov does not limit himself to the depiction of heroic acts alone but also portrays the deep emotions of men under stress. His prose exhibits an economy of style and a sense of dramatic action unusual in war novels of the cold-war era, which generally glorified the Soviet government and were expected to function as propaganda for the Soviet system."--Encyclopedia of World Biography, 2010. ISBN: 281AIB1024187.

    First edition (first printing), and scarce, thus, with only two library holdings in OCLC. Clear tape repairs to spine, else very good.
