520    "A masterpiece of Gulag literature, the complete Kolyma 
       Stories is a thousand-page epic composed of short 
       fictional tales based on Russian writer Varlam Shalamov’s 
       fifteen years in the Gulag. He spent six years as a slave 
       in the gold mines of Kolyma, a far northeast region of the
       USSR and one of the coldest and most inhospitable places 
       on Earth, before finding a less intolerable life as a 
       paramedic in the prison camps. He began writing his six-
       volume prose account of life in Kolyma after Stalin’s 
       death in 1953 and continued until his own physical and 
       mental decline in the late 1970s.  Kolyma Stories 
       comprises the first three volumes of Shalamov’s tales. The
       line between autobiography and fiction is indistinct: 
       Everything in these stories was experienced or witnessed 
       by Shalamov. His work records the real names of prisoners 
       and their oppressors; he himself appears simply as “I” or
       “Shalamov,” or at times under a pseudonym, such as 
       Andreyev or Krist. These collected stories form the 
       biography of a rare survivor, a historical record of the 
       Gulag, and, because the stories have more than documentary
       value, a literary work of creative power and conviction."
