Plot introduction[edit]

The novel is a subtle and complex narrative which takes the form of fictional letters between two Eastern European workers, Yarostan Vochek and Sophia Nachalo, who are separated after a failed revolution. Yarostan spends twelve years in statist jails, while Sophia escapes to the West. After twenty years without contact, they begin to write each other about their experiences, their lives, their hopes, and their memories of the past.
