Part post-apocalyptic adventure story and part scathing critique of humanity, Volodine’s award-winning novel takes place after the fall of the Second Soviet Union against a bleak, almost Tarkovskian landscape. A number of damaged individuals wander this nuclear winter seeking safety, both from the elements and from the psychotic Solovyei who invades people’s dreams and torments them for thousands of years.
