Georgy Jachmenev once lived in the Tsar’s Winter Palace, coming of age during the revolution. Now, he is an 80-year-old man watching his beloved wife deteriorate in front of his eyes. She asks to visit Russia one last time, and as they journey towards St. Petersburg, Georgy’s memories of the past begin to release themselves: secret romances, loyalties tested and youthful naivete warped and molded into something unrecognizeable and cruel. Available for the first time in the US, John Boyne (The Boy With the Striped Pajamas) delivers a tour de force of historical fiction.
