The Novelist as Truthteller: The Achievement and Legacy of Vasily Grossman

Vasily Grossman’s career as a novelist and reporter extended from the depth of Stalin’s terror in the 1930s to the slushy uncertainties of Kruschev’s thaw. Along the way, he wrote one of the masterpieces of twentieth-century literature, Life and Fate. This panel will explore the life and work of a writer intimately acquainted with questions of courage and cowardice, for whom fiction was nothing if not the pursuit of truth.
