A unique and remarkable account of the war in Chechnya by the internationally acclaimed author of Siberian Education

About the Author

Nicolai Lilin is a Russian writer of Siberian descent. He was born in 1980 in the USSR and grew up in Transnistria, a small state that declared its independence in 1990. He was conscripted to the Russian military, and was involved in anti-terrorist operations in Chechnya. Once his military service ended, he worked for various private security agencies as an anti-terrorism consultant before leaving military life to travel in various European countries, including Ireland. He settled in Italy, and founded an arts centre in Milan dedicated to the tradition and design of Siberian tattoos. His first book, Siberian Education, was a major bestseller in Italy and it was published in the UK to critical acclaim.

Reviews

* Extraordinary...Lilin serves up brilliantly harrowing set-pieces, but also illuminates the soul of the warrior. Scotland on Sunday * A pitiless account ... pierced with firm feelings for his 'family' of fellow saboteurs - as well as an existential sorrow over a war that made so little sense that peace, when it finally came, felt incomprehensible. Metro * A young Russian soldier's brutal memoir. Times * Force yourself to forget about categories of good and evil, you have to just be there and read ... produces a thrill of pleasure that is hard to forget. -- Roberto Saviano, author of GOMORRAH [on SIBERIAN EDUCATION] * Lilin's astonishing account of his life takes you into some very strange worlds; frightening, violent and yet with spirited moments of redemption which both offer hope and keep you reading ... a breath-taking memoir. -- Misha Glenny Mail on Sunday [on SIBERIAN EDUCATION] * A marvellous and illuminating book ...This story makes most of what we call true crime writing seem insipid and effete. -- Irvine Welsh [on SIBERIAN EDUCATION]
