Editorial reviews (4 reviews)


DuBois evokes Soviet and modern-day Russia so finely and comically that the tighter and tighter interweavings of the plot sometimes suffocate.

That sweet feeling of settling into a satisfying read washes over you as soon as your eyes feast on the opening paragraphs of this mesmerizing debut novel.... duBois tells this gripping tale of political intrigue, romantic idealism, pathos and triumph over crushing obstacles in a political thriller at once heartwarming and heartbreaking.

DuBois tells a tight story with boldface themes. Drama is constant. Conversations get right to the point. Everything means something.
