Description

Coloured by poverty and horrifying brutality, Gorky's childhood equipped him to understand - in a way denied to a Tolstoy or a Turgenev - the life of the ordinary Russian. This volume of an autobiographical trilogy, was in part an act of exorcism. It describes a life begun in the raw, remembered with charm and poignancy and without bitterness.
