Uncut Solzhenitsyn

An unedited version of Aleksander Solzhenitsyn's The First Circle is coming out in English, four decades after it was first published and immediately banned by Soviet officials. The prison camp story will be published by Harper Perennial, a paperback imprint of HarperCollins. Solzhenitsyn now lives in Moscow. He won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1970. A shortened version appeared for English audiences in 1968 over objections by the author.
