Alexander Solzhenitsyn : a century in his life by D. M Thomas ( Book )

"D. M. Thomas paints a deeply affecting portrait of the intricate relationship between Solzhenitsyn's life and his art, always framing this biography in the context of the historical times." "Indeed, Thomas tells not only the harrowing and sorrowful tale of Alexander Solzhenitsyn's life but also the painful story of Russia itself, a country perpetually at war with itself and its own diverse people. Beginning with the years of Revolution and Civil War, Solzhenitsyn's dramatic life embodies the cruelty, passion, and chaos that have characterized Russian history over the last century. Thomas's account covers extensively all the major periods of the Russian author's remarkable life, from childhood to his years in the Stalinist labor camps, his battle against censorship and his expulsion from the U.S.S.R. in 1974, and his Vermont period and return to a Russia that has shed its Communist cloak but not its dark interior."--BOOK JACKET.

"Pictures at an Exhibition opens in Auschwitz. An S.S. officer, Dr. Lorenz, suffers from severe headaches and calls upon a young Jewish Czech inmate, Galewski, whom he knows to have some understanding of Freudian theory to cure him. Starving and dressed in prison rags, Galewski soon grows accustomed to these c̀ivilized" interludes, during which he is treated to cakes, Mozart, and the Nazi's grotesque dreams. Lorenz, his pain now in periodic abatement, is sufficiently appeased to continue the sessions. More add more dependent on each other, they are soon locked in a danse macabre." "The scene then shifts to London, fifty years, later. A charismatic, aging psychoanalyst and his wife hold court over a sophisticated group of very close friends. They change partners - and identities - living out a baroque Freudian masquerade against a backdrop by Edvard Munch, to music by Gustav Mahler. As they descend, together, into a recurrent nightmare, the legacy of the Holocaust, is revealed as an explosive force in all their lives." "Masterfully suspenseful and powerfully haunting, Pictures at an Exhibition is a return for D. M. Thomas to the dark, provocative themes of The White Hotel."--BOOK JACKET.

Flying in to love by D. M Thomas ( Book )

The assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy is the haunting subject of D. M. Thomas's Flying in to Love. Reconstructing the events that took place in Dallas on November 22, 1963. Thomas's novel brings back to life the tragedy that left its indelible mark on American history and embroiders it with the author's own lyrical imagination. A literary novel of enormous power, interweaving fact and fiction, it is decidedly his best book since The White Hotel. Thomas paints vivid portraits of the President, Mrs. Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald, Vice President Lyndon Johnson, and Texas Governor John Connally. He brilliantly explores the continuing obsessions both with Kennedy the man and with the disturbing paradoxes and mysteries of his death. Reality, fantasy. and mythology interlink like the triple underpass in Dealey Plaza. Flying in to Love is D. M. Thomas's most controversial novel yet and a book destined to shock readers and create a sensation.
