"If Russian history is indeed a commentary to the Bible, then this is an audacious attempt to shine a mystical light on it." -- Anna Aslanyan, The Independent
"...darkly brilliant...ironizes and genuinely challenges the conceits woven through modern Russian history and culture: fleshly resurrection, holy foolishness, erotic utopia and the sexualization of terror." -- Muireann Maguire, Russian Dinosaur
About the Author
A historian of late-medieval Russia by training Vladimir Sharov, born in 1952, first turned to fiction in the late 1970s. It was not until the 1990s, however, that his extraordinarily imaginative and daring novels come to the attention of the public. When they did, they caused acrimony and controversy. Before and During in 2014 was his first novel to appear in English, which will be followed in 2016 by The Rehearsals, both translated by Oliver Ready.
