ANew York TimesNotable Book of 2007 "A tremendous achievement."--The Sunday Times(London) The arrests, trials, enslavement, and gulags of Stalin's dictatorship are well-known. But no previous book has looked at the regime's effect on private lives--the devastation of families and the spread of suspicion throughout every village, neighborhood, and home in Russia. Drawing on a huge collection of family archives and thousands of interviews,The Whisperersis an authoritative, intimate history of a society in which everyone spoke in whispers--either to protect those close to them, or to inform on them.
