new refresher contract

«The Eltyshevs» refreshed with Fazi Editore/ Italy

THE ELTYSHEVS – L’ULTIMO DEGLI ELYSHEV published by Fazi Editore/ Italy in the translation by Claudia Zonghetti is probably Roman Senchin’s most famous novel.

Nikolai Eltyshev is a policeman on duty at a station with a sobering-up cell, the mother Valentina works as a librarian, her youngest son is in prison and the older one is just killing time at home. A completely normal Russian civil servant family. The Eltyshev’s village is THE village, provincial Russia with all of its brutal present day reality. The ruins of a past era, the breakdown of which Putin called the «greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century».
