The Light and the Dark

by Mikhail Shishkin, translated by Andrew Bromfield
£8.99   paperback  Quercus Publishing Plc (2014)

The Light and the Dark by Mikhail Shishkin, translated by Andrew Bromfield Fate sends two star-crossed lovers, Sasha and Volodenka, on two separate journeys across space and time. Sasha finds herself as a young woman in a time not far from the present day. Volodenka finds himself as a young soldier in a horrific conflict at the turn of the twentieth century.
 
Yet, despite their cosmic schism, their letters still reach one another; as he helps her to come to terms with life and she helps him to come to terms with death.
 
Half male, half female; half exploration of the physical and the immediate, half meditation on the intangible and the infinite, The Light and the Dark is a literary feat as balanced and beautiful as it is prodigious and profound.
