Paperback: $17.99
Ships in 3-5 business days
Alexander Kuprin prefaced his novel "The Pit" about the lives of early 20th century Russian prostitutes as follows, "I know many people will find this novel amoral and inappropriate,... More > but nevertheless I dedicated it from the bottom of my heart to mothers and young people." Indeed, the novel's publication was followed by an explosion of outrage. The "good" society accused Kuprin of slander and forever exiled him from its sitting rooms, charity auctions, and holiday balls. Progressive intellecutals winced and shuddered, but could not help admitting Kuprin had a point. As with the works of Marquis de Sade and George Sand, parents hid copies of the book from their children. But those who wanted to read the book found the way. Whether hated or admired, forbidden or applauded - one thing was certain: Kuprin's beautifully written, brutally realistic, vivid, and poignant novel left no one indifferent.< Less

Luther Lewis, inflexible and autocratic, bestrides his pits like a colossus. He is feared and hated and grudges go deep. Many pits are closed or on short time and it needs only a spark to create... More > industrial chaos. Tom Morgan, union man, provides the spark, and Dai Crew’s hatred causes the fateful blow to be struck. The resultant calamity is quite unlike the popular conception of a mining disaster and many families become embroiled. Above ground, non-one knows who, if anyone, has survived – and then it becomes known that Lewis himself was one of those below ground at the time of the cave-in. Whilst the task of getting to survivors begins, the disaster provokes all – those safe on the surface and those trapped below – to start a process of soul searching. For some it is a wake-up call - others have no soul to search. Behind every face is a story – and behind many of these faces are ugly secrets that would do better to stay hid.< Less
