Available for the first time in English, Apricot Jam and Other Stories  is the brilliant final work of fiction from Nobel Prize-winning author Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. Written in the years between Solzhenitsyn's  return to Russia from exile in 1994, and his death in 2008, these  stories confirm the author's position as the most eloquent and acclaimed  opponent of government oppression in the twentieth century and as a true literary giant. Apricot Jam and Other Stories  presents a series of astonishing portraits of the Russian life before, during and after Soviet rule. In 'The New Generation', a professor  promotes a student purely out of good will. Years later, the same  professor finds himself arrested and, in a striking twist of fate, his student becomes his interrogator. In 'Nastenka', two young women with  the same name lead routine, ordered lives - until the Revolution exacts radical change on them both. With an unforgettable cast of military commanders, imprisoned activists and displaced families, these  stories play out the moral dilemmas and ideological conflicts that defined Russia in the twentieth century.

After years of living in exile, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn returned to Russia in 1994 and published a series of eight powerfully paired stories. These groundbreaking works--interconnected and juxtaposed using an experimental method Solzhenitsyn referred to as 'binary'--join Solzhenitsyn's already available fiction as some of the most powerful literature of the twentieth century. With Soviet and post-Soviety life as their focus, these stories weave and shift inside their shared setting, illuminating the Russian experience under the Soviet regime. In 'The Upcoming Generation,' a professor promotes a dull but proletarian student purely out of good will. Years later, the same professor finds himself arrested and, in a striking twist of fate, his student becomes his interrogator. In 'Nastenka,' two young women with the same name lead routine, ordered lives--until the Revolution exacts radical change on them both. The most eloquent and acclaimed opponent of government oppression, Solzhenitsyn was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1970, and his work continues to receive international acclaim. Available for the first time in English, 'Apricot Jam and Other Stories' is a striking example of Solzhenitsyn's singular style and only further solidifies his place as a true literary giant.
