'Alexander Solzhenitsyn, nearing fifty at the time, was known to his companion through his works.  One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich had already been published in the West, while Cancer Ward was then the talk of Moscow.  And although the dark-haired, attractive young woman who walked by his side had only been introduced to him that day, she carried credentials impressive enough to support his trust.  For Olga Carlisle - child of Emigre parents, grand-daughter of Russia's beloved playwright Leonid Andreyev - shared many Moscow friends with Solzhenitsyn.
And so began a working relationship that would span seven years and include publication not only of The First Circle but also of his monumental work of nonfiction, The Gulag Archipelago.'
