It is the candid commentary of a brilliant observer who documents fifty years of Soviet literary activity and the personal predicament of the writer under a totalitarian regime." "From detailed descriptions of meetings and friendships with such major literary figures as Anna Akhmatova, Maxim Gorky, and Isaak Babel to accounts of the wearying struggle with obtuse and hostile censorship, from the heartbreaking story of the death of the daughter who had inspired countless stories to candid political statements, the extraordinary diary of Kornei Chukovsky is a unique account of the twentieth-century Russian experience."--BOOK JACKET.
