Grigori Kanovich – Devilspel published by Noir Press/ UK

   new publication

The English translation of Grigori Kanovich’s novel DEVILSPEL has been published by Noir Press/ UK.

The novel is set during the tragic few weeks in June-July 1941, when the German army in a sudden attack defeated the Red Army and within a few days occupied Lithuania. Kanovich limits the spatial horizon of his novel to a small isolated village deep in the Lithuanian heartland. The village is too insignificant for the Germans to maintain their presence there, and its residents are left to their own devices. Slowly and painstakingly, Kanovich investigates the spiritual depths of the characters, simple shtetl Jews and Lithuanian peasants, exposing their moral strengths and weaknesses.

As in his previous novel SHTETL ROMANCE this Lithuanian author who is writing in Russian, is exploring the fundamental and universal ethical conflict between good and evil, which transcends the limits of concrete space and time.

   VIKTOR MARTINOVICH

Martinovich‘s dystopian travelogue NIGHT goes beyond a mere parable on the social-political conditions of this last dictatorship in the heart of Europe. For on his journey through the desert land, the intrepid Knizhnik can see the world step by step differently than before, when he, like all others, closed his eyes out of fear, stupidity and habit and believed in propaganda and rumors

„In fact, Martinovich is trying to do for Belarus what Gabrielle Garcia Marquez has done before. He brought the village of Makondo into world literature. And in it, as if in a nutshell, all Colombia, and even all of Latin America, with its mystical thin- king, the belief in God and at the same time the dead, and endless military coups.“ BELARUSSKI ZHURNAL

He longs to exact revenge for his banishment to the virtual world where the sensation of pain has reached one hundred percent…

Roman Senchin – Flood Plains sold Al Arabi Publishing/ Egypt

   new sale

Arabic language rights for Roman Senchin’s novel FLOOD PLAINS have been sold to Al Arabi Publishing/ Egypt.

A simple story that is often told: Naomi Klein tells it in her non-fictional analysis “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate“. Andrey Zvyagintsev in his Oscar-nominee cinematic drama “Leviathan“. And Roman Senchin tells a very actual Siberian version of individual profit verses public welfare.

With the emotional forcefulness of an irrevocable farewell Senchin describes the life in the doomed villages in the centre of the fertile and nourishing countryside while the water inexorably rises. The undercurrent of the novel is like the Siberian river that once flowed freely: crystal-clear, fast and full of fish.
