Beschreibung

It is 1948 and Aleksandr, a major in the MGB (the forerunner of the KGB) is sent to an isolated psychiatric clinic to investigate one of the patients there. The patient is a man long presumed dead - a now severely incapacitated veteran of the Second World War, who seems unable to remember any of his past. Twenty-four years later, Aleksandr is haunted by the case. With his Stalinist faith under threat as the Cold War recedes, he interrogates his memories and the effect the case had on himself and on those he loved most.

"Szalay moves skilfully across time and shows that history's end is not prophesied in books, but written in the wind"

David Szalay was born in Canada in 1974. His first novel, London and the South-East, won the Betty Trask Prize and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize. His latest novel, Spring, was published by Jonathan Cape in 2011. He was was chosen as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists 2013. He lives in London.

"This is a double headed story that is both sad and compelling" -- Nina Caplan Timeout "Szalay weaves a multilayered narrative ripe with period detail... A challenging thriller... Gripping" Metro "Impressive... Still in his mid-thirties, Szalay will surely soon be adding more prizes to his Betty Trask" The Sunday Times "Szalay moves skilfully across time and shows that history's end is not prophesied in books, but written in the wind" -- Steven Martin The Big Issue "David Szalay... has created an extraordinary character, a KGB man you can imagine knowing or even being" Observer
