I read Solzhenitzyn's Harvard Commencement speech and I loved it. Can anybody recommend which of his books would be best to start with? (BTW I prefer light reading. I can make my way through a First Things article if it's interesting, but my ADD usually gets the best of me.
I think you'll find no "light" reading in Solzhenitzyn. I read the Gulag Archepelago
,The First Circle
, and The Cancer Ward
in quick succession about twenty years ago. Not particularily demanding reading but rather ponderous in content nevertheless. I do need to update my reading of his newer works. Good luck!
