The Industry of Souls: A Novel
Picador, 2000/10/06 - 256 ページ
The remarkably powerful and critically acclaimed novel that was chosen as A New York Times Notable Book of 1999 and shortlisted for The Booker Prize
The Industry of Souls is the story of Alexander Bayliss, a British citizen arrested for spying in the Soviet Union in the early 1950's. Eventually freed from the gulag in the 1970's, he finds he has no reason to return to the West-he has become Russian in everything but birth.
Now, on the day of his 80th birthday, Russia has changed. Communism has evaporated. In the aftermath, information has come to light that Alex is still alive. This moving story weaves together the events of Alex's life, exploring this momentous day, his harrowing past in the camp and his life in the village. And it ends with his having to make a personal choice, perhaps for the first time in his life, and the climax is shattering.

Review: The Industry of Soulsユーザー レビュー - Claire McAlpine - Goodreads
This is the book I always mention when asked for my favourite book, it's been many years since I read it and so I'm re-reading it to see whether my perception has changed. Stunning, brilliant, still love it as much today as I ever did. It deserves to be read by all. レビュー全文を読む
