Part thriller, part domestic tragedy, at once political and intensely personal, Ivan Kilma’s epicly scaled new novel is an inquest into the compromises that turned even the best citizens of Czechoslovakia into accomplices of its late totalitarian regime.

“Enormously powerful.”

New York Times Book Review.
