This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
The classic Russian dystopia that inspired Nineteen Eighty-Four and influenced writers from Nabokov to Rand to Vonnegut.
In a glass city composed of absolute straight lines, ruled over by the all-powerful 'Benefactor', the citizens of OneState live their lives without passion or agency. That is until D-503, a man tasked with bringing the Revolution to the stars, meets a remarkable woman . . .
Supressed in Russia for decades, Zamyatin's dystopian masterpiece prophesised the worst excesses of the Soviet Union, while creating an enduring and vivid vision of what future societies might look like - a vision which would inspire George Orwell's 1984 and many subsequent dystopias.
