Alexander Solzhenitsyn R.I.P.

Hell they pass away at such a speed, it's hard to keep an up to date blog ;-).

This time it's Mr. Alexander Solzhenitsyn who passed away at the age of 89. You can read a lot obituaries of course but i'd like to get your attention for this and this one. I read his Gulag Archipelago trilogy some years ago and still have his August 1914 on my to read list.
