Godfrey Blunden

  • The Indian Game

    An Australian just turned forty, GODFREY BLUNDEN has had the rare opportunity of living the life of a Muscovite, writing and observing in Russia during those taut days of 1942 and 1943 when the relief of Stalingrad turned the tide of defeat. His knowledge of the Russian character gained at that time was the source material of his exceptionally vivid novel, A Room on the Route, as it is of this, his first published short story with its remarkable comparison of the British and Russian temperaments.
