“Grandmother gave him more than unexpected ancestors. The world of another culture appeared before him, a silent but living world to which he belonged by inheritance, by the right of wild, inexhaustible blood in which all eras and the starry sky flowed.”

I have wondered over the years, why I have not heard of many contemporary Russian authors, so discovering this sprawling, family saga, was a joy. This novel focuses on a young Russian man, with German origins, looking back at his family history, inspired by his late grandmother's passing. It goes back generations, (into the 19th century) so the reader gets an informative overview of Russian history, right through the modern age. It appears that plenty of deep research went into this story and the prose is strong and fluid. It also is a solid translation. I will have to seek out this author's earlier work. ( )
