Synopsis

'BARNES'S MASTERPIECE' - OBSERVER



In May 1937 a man in his early thirties waits by the lift of a Leningrad apartment block. He waits all through the night, expecting to be taken away to the Big House. Any celebrity he has known in the previous decade is no use to him now. And few who are taken to the Big House ever return.



'Stunning' Sunday Times



'A profound meditation on power and the relationship of art and power... It is a masterpiece of sympathetic understanding... I don't think Barnes has written a finer, more truthful or more profound book' Scotsman

Staff Choice

There are many fine biographies of Shostakovich, but this new novel by one of our finest living authors does what only a novel can do – it grants us access to the mind of the legendary composer. Through an often dream-like account of Shostakovich’s experiences, Julian Barnes explores the tussle between art and power, with a droll Gogolesque appreciation of the dark absurdities that characterised Stalinist Russia.
