Great news! Work on the translation of my historical book “The Last Summer Before the Revolution” is nearing completion. In a few weeks, the Italian version of the novel will go on sale in online stores around the world. Work is also underway on translating into Greek the dramatic story of the fall of Russia.
About the book
Nature rebelled first. The summer of 1916 is the roar of thunderstorms, wind in the face and icy jets from the sky. But people barely notice the weather. War, war is on everyone’s lips, it interfered with creativity, study, love, life, cut society into two camps. The revolution is already hovering in the electrified air; but the tsar, who unleashed the war, does not notice this. He trusts his own newspapers, follows the battles in the movies and worries most about his family…
Here is a documentary cross-section of the epoch in the letters, feelings, thoughts of the participants of the events; but we will also rise “above the fray” – the finest threads connecting all our heroes are especially noticeable from above: from the emperor to the poet, from the military doctor to the poor peasant woman. These threads intertwined into the wick of the future revolution, and it was set on fire by the summer lightning of 1916.
The book is written in the style of the work of the German writer Florian Illies “1913. The summer of a century.”
