“The dead feel no pain” – A Belarusian Novel by Vasil’ Bykau

This week’s reading: “The dead feel no pain” (Miortvym nie balic), a Belarusian novel of the Second World War by Vasil’ Bykau. The book is about the life of a Soviet foot soldier on the Eastern front during the Second World War. Obviously the novel was res non grata and not published in its entirety until after the demise of the USSR.
