Translation rights for a second novel by Grigori Kanovich have been acquired by Noir Press/ UK – DEVILSPEL.

The novel is set during the tragic few weeks in June-July 1941, when the German army within a few days occupied Lithuania. Kanovich’s writing is informed by his deep native knowledge of the Lithuanian countryside where he grew up in the 1930s, but he is no less intimately familiar with the Russian and Jewish cultures. Yet his real interest as a writer is in exploring the fundamental and universal ethical conflict between good and evil, which transcends the limits of concrete space and time.

The English edition of Kanovich’s other famous novel SHTETL ROMANCE has been published right in time for London Book Fair 2018 where the Baltics will be market focus.
