ETERNAL FROST – A great epic novel set against the background of the construction of the “Great Stalin Railway”
80,000 prisoners of the GULAG were simultaneously working between 1947 and 1953 on the Arctic Circle in Siberia. It is one of the most tragic projects of the Stalinist machinery of repression.
Like the Enisei, this new novel by Viktor Remizov is a mighty, broad, calm river. No sudden unexpected turns, no rapids. But once you have stepped aboard Captain Belov‘s tugboat, you can no longer escape the power of its currents and undercurrents.
«Remizov’s novel contains many valuable details that cannot be invented. He collected them all, listened, spied, saw, remembered. Many historical details that cannot be found in Solzhenitsyn, Shalamov and others.» NATSBEST VERONIKA KUNGURTSEVA
“Thanks for the truth. It is the truth without a doubt. We have to remember that. That’s how it was.“ LITRES
