Oleg Pavlov – Tales of the Last Days

   

new publication

English audio edition published by storybox/ Heraclon

Oleg Pavlov’s famous trilogy TALES FROM THE LAST DAYS is set at the end of the era of the Soviet Union, but they do paint a fundamental picture of the situation in the Russian army, a situation that has scarcely improved since the time of the Soviet Union. Death is ever present, and in the places of death life prevails. Anarchy and chance are the only means by which the individual can survive inside the strictly hierarchical structure. Those caught in this system are all weak and dejected, cruel and immune to suffering. The few moments of human warmth are seen as sheer happiness.

Oleg Zobern – Autobiography of Iesus Christ

new publication

Czech translation published by Albatros

Oleg Zobern’s book AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF IESUS CHRIST in the guise of a fictional novel. A highly intelligent, likeable philanthropist, stumbling through life as best he can. In times neither better nor worse than ours, where wheeling and dealing defines every-day life, where it is not only the poor soil and the raw climate that cause the frequent migratory movements, fanatical guardians of public morals and occupying forces make life difficult as well.

”Devastating! It looks as if we have our own Salman Rushdie.” Aleksandr Mikhailov (Lecturer at the Gorky Literature Institute)

”The Iesus in Zobern’s ‘Autobiography’ is an icon of the antichrist.” Archpriest Chaplin (Former adviser to the Russian Patriarch Kirill)

Inga Kuznetsova – Inside Out

new representation

from the perspective of a SARS-CoV-2 virus – self-aware, curious about the world, and genuinely fond of human beings

The radical book INSIDE OUT by Inga Kuznetsova is turning our worldview upside down and inside out. A hyperrealistic parable about the current state of our planet, offering questions about a new ethic which applies not just to humans, but to all living beings.
