Aleksei Ivanov – Riot Gold

new sale

Arabic rights to Dar al-Kutub

Aleksei Ivanov’s historical novel ZOLOTO BUNTA – RIOT GOLD is one of several novels about the cruel medieval past of Siberia.

1778. The Urals are smoky by mining plants. And for factories there is only one road to Russia – the rough river Chusovaya. But here the barks with factory iron are ruthlessly destroyed by coastal rocks. For the rafters, who lead the barks on the river stremnins, there is a way to avoid the wreckage: to ask Satan for help, and transfer their immortal soul to a schismatic sect. However, the young raftingman Ostash raises a revolt against the sect. The reason, it seems, is in the gold of the Pugachev treasure hidden somewhere on the rocks.

   new sale

It is raining in Paris. Russian tourist Andrei hardly comes out of the hotel room, but travels – against his will, but with a lot of alcohol – deep into his own past. So far suppressed by the events of everyday life, they rise from the depths to the surface. Internally, however, the sun comes out more often and illuminates the dark spots of that time.

The sincerity and accuracy of the author, the attention to detail create the vivid and truthful image of a forty-year-old man and his life in the Russian province. The hero and the reader with him become gradually aware: Without understanding the past, people have no future.

“«Rain in Paris» is also a kind of crypto-remake, an encrypted on many levels exten- sive allusion to Oblomov.“
