One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Alexander Solzhenitsyn
First of all, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich is a book about a man who obviously tells one day of his life with major detail. Denisovich explains his ups and down throughout his long stay in this camp. From what many people look at it, it's almost as if it were a prison. Until now, Ivan Denisovich shows how he is treated poorly without any food, barley any warm clothes, and with people above him that call him all types of horrid names.
