Joseph Brodsky: Last Morning in the USSR, 1972.
Brodsky with the help of his American friends escaped for USA in 1972 and never returned back. It seemed that he never had regrets about that - at home he was subjected to repressions and was promised for more if he would not express emigrate. Twice he was put to mental institutions, charged with social parasitism in 1964 and sentenced and sentenced for that to 5 years (though he spent only 18 month of the term due to the protests of the prominent cultural workers)
