  Mikhail Odnobibl – The Queue

Winner of 2016 National Bestseller Award and Big Book Award. The book was also given the Russian Booker Prize Translation Grant.
In the far east of Siberia, the Yakuts have dared to launch the final uprising against the Red Army. By using this hardly known episode of the Russian Revolution, Yuzefovich is able to portray deeper human motives: the love, passion and individual suffering that are buried in the ideology are revealed and the characters shown to be both oppressor and victim. In the end each individual is responsible for the Russian tragedy.
