Anna Berseneva – Trilogy

new representation

100 years of tragic

From 1924 in Belarus to Algier, Paris, Moscow, continuing in the 1930s-1950s to the Far East and back via Polesie to Germany and finally ending 2022 in Russia.

Anna Berseneva’s new TRILOGY is upmarket entertaining literature that does not require kitsch and has believable characters but is nowhere near as dark as a book dedicated to history could be – and yet it is honest and presents the past in three dimensions using the example of a family saga.

Berseneva’s books have a total circulation in Russia of about 5 million copies. Fifteen novels have been filmed. Berseneva has left Russia and lives in Germany now.

Oleg Navalny – 3 ½ With Prisoner’s Respect and Fraternal Warmth

new representation

brother of Alexei Navalny about Russian prison

In December 2014, the Navalny brothers, Oleg and Alexei, were convicted in Russia. Alexei got 3 years of probation, while Oleg Navalny was sentenced to 3 years in prison. Although the European court of human rights ruled that the convictions were arbitrary and unfair, Oleg served the entire term, 1278 days.

His book 3 ½ WITH PRISONER’S RESPECT AND FRATERNAL WARMTH, mostly written in prison, gives an account of everything that happened to him during that time. You will find out what is the difference between the red and the black zone, what prison sheets and towels are for, where to hide a sim card during a search and more. And this book is about remaining resilient even in the most outrageous, horrible and bizarre circumstances.

“All stories about prison are to a certain extent similar to each other, like road movies. Therefore, what is important, who talks about the prison and how. Navalny’s book is a book about how not to get lost even in the most wild, terrible and ridiculous circumstances.“AFISHA

Petr Aleshkovski – A Russian Chronicle of the War

new representation

published in diaspora

Aleshkovki‘s position is clear from the first line. The experience and horror of what happened is not hushed up, on the contrary, it is the driving force behind the book. The book was published in Israel because the author would have faced a long prison sentence in Russia.

This RUSSIAN CHRONICLE OF THE WAR contains impressions of a journey through a country at war, but on whose territory no hostilities are taking place. But the war is felt by every cell of the body, and surprisingly the author met many who were against the war against the brother people of Ukraine from the very beginning.

young female Ukrainian voice

Anna Morozova, born in 1989 in Sumy, Ukraine, is a metal scientist and volcanologist who also pursued a career in travel journalism that would take her to 70 countries around the world. Her award winning novel THE FOURTH HELPER OF ST. CHRISTOPHER is a literary adventure novel where the young main hero Rozov never loses sight of his ultimate goal – to return home to Odesa and reunite with the love of his life.

“A book that I dragged with me everywhere. 700 pages, hardcover, weighs around 1 kg, so „dragged“ is definitely the right word. And „everywhere“ means to bed, to the toilet, to the beach, to work. I brushed my teeth with it, went jogging with it, drank coffee with it in the morning and wine in the evening. If there was a way to read while driving to the office, I would have. I regretted having to waste time working, eating, sleeping instead of reading on.” GOODREADS

On February 24, 2022, the Russian army launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. The city of Kharkiv quickly comes under heavy fire. Hundreds of thousands of people flee. The Ukrainian writer Sergey Gerasimov and his wife together with several cats remain in the embattled frontline town. Soon there will be a lack of clean water, food and medical infrastructure. The thermometers show high sub-zero temperatures, people are freezing. Gerasimov begins to write about the absurdity of everyday life in war. The result are his NOTES FROM KHARKIV, a stirring testimony, an appeal for peace and understanding and thus a perfect book for the memorial day of the beginning of the war in February every year.
