Title Not by Bread Alone: Translated from the Russian by Dr. Edith Bone.
Publisher London Hutchinson
Date 1957
Book ID 37901
First Edition  


First English edition. vii[[i]+447 pp., epilogue with facsimile signature, in original unclipped dust-wrapper. Loosely enclosed 3 contemporary review cuttings (C. P. Snow, V. S. Pritchett in New Statesman, and Richard Newnham in Truth). In very good condition. Clean, bright and tight. First published in instalments in Novy Mir, Dudinstev’s landmark novel about an engineer opposed by bureaucrats as he seeks to implement his invention caused a sensation in the USSR. The tale became a literary symbol of the Khrushchev era although official reaction soon turned against the work and Dudintsev suffered years of poverty. In later years, however, accolade returned. In 2005, Mosfilm director Stanislav Govorukhin released the film based on the novel.
