Larionov. A general of the Imperial Russian Army who mysteriously avoided execution by the Bolsheviks when they swept to power and went on to live a long life in Yalta, leaving behind a vast heritage of memoirs.

Solovyov. The young history student who travels to Crimea, determined to find out how Larionov evaded capture after the 1917 revolution.

With wry humor, Eugene Vodolazkin, one of Russia’s foremost contemporary writers, takes listeners on a fascinating journey through a momentous period of Russian history, interweaving the intriguing story of two men from very different backgrounds that ultimately asks whether we can really understand the present without first understanding the past.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Third-person narration, circular structure, and archetypal characters lend this beautifully written literary mystery the feel of a modern fable.”

    Booklist

  • “Part academic satire, part military history, part philosophical meditation, part detective tale, part rollicking caper…There is sprightly, funny satire here and, beneath it, a surprising vein of poignancy.”
