Biography

Russian dissident writer, novelist and historian whose work brilliantly exposed the brutality of life in the Stalin era. Solzhenitsyn was exiled in 1974 for actions that were not compatible with Soviet citizenship. The winner of the Nobel Prize in 1970, his books include, "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich," taken from personal experience, and released in 1962.

Expelled from Russia in 1974, it was 20 years before he was able to return to his homeland.
