During the 60's, russian writer André Siniavski secretly published books in the West under the name of Abram Tertz. In GOODNIGHT!, published in 1992, he recalls his 1966 trial when sentenced to a 7 years detention for having published anti-russian books and his life in the camp. The author also remembers moments of his youth, his friendship with a young genius who'll become a stool pigeon of the KGB and his encounter with a french woman who'll help him pass his manuscripts to the West. Fascinating book of a man who has been one of the first Russian dissidents.
