Reviews

A powerful story of metaphysical adventure. - L'ExpressA thrilling manhunt through the taiga. - LiberationAs good as Stendhal or Tolstoy . . . I would rather read him than anyone else now writing - Literary Review.One of the significant novelists of our age. - Observer.Makine packs great steppes-full of history into compact, bejewelled boxes of prose. - Independent.Makine's wonderful economy of image and phrase convey far more than one could think possible about the Russian soul. - Daily Telegraph.Masterful . . . Makine has been justly compared with Tolstoy, but here I think the better reference is Joseph Conrad. - Spectator.Pleasingly clever stuff . . . has an ambition of romantic grandeur that feels genuinely, soulfully Russian. - Sunday Times.
