The agency proudly announces the worldwide representation of the works by Vladimir Sharov who is already considered a living classic.
His novel BEFORE AND DURING, published in the early 90ies evoked heavy polemic responses due to the provoking discussion of the entanglement of communism and religion. Themes and motifs around this topic recur throughout his oeuvre descenting into the geographic, social and religious depths of Russia from the 17th to the 20th century.
«There are novels that are fascinating because of their ambitious design, others because of their urgent demand for attention and their impressive style, and then there are those with a unique subject matter. In Sharov‘s „Rehearsals“ all these characteristics are present and excellently combined.»
The full English translation of BEFORE AND DURING by Oliver Ready and published by Dedalus/ UK is available for proof reading.
