Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Moscow, 1921, Tatiana and Sasha meet in a bookstore the night it is bombed and fall in love. Tatiana, a promising young scientist, soon follows her mentor to the Institut Mozga to study the source of genius, while Sasha, an artist, drifts aimlessly in a world increasingly indifferent to his art. In this brilliantly captivating tale of a love torn apart by ideology and high-stakes politics, Parr portrays the heady idealism and cavernous contradictions of post-Revolutionary Russia.
