About this product
- DescriptionThe Matiushin Case is one of the darkest and most powerful works of fiction to appear in Russian in the last twenty years. Deriving from Pavlov's own traumatic experience as a conscript in the Soviet Union, it follows the ordeals of Matiushin, a sensitive, disoriented young man, damaged by brutality first within his family and then the army.
- Author BiographyOleg Pavlov is one of the most highly-regarded contemporary Russian writers. He has won the Russian Booker Prize (2002) and the Solzhenitsyn Prize (2012) among many other awards. Born in Moscow in 1970, Pavlov spent his military service as a prison guard in Kazakhstan. Many of the incidents portrayed in his fiction draw on his experiences there. He recalls reading about Karabas, the camp he had worked at, in Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago, then became Solzhenitsyn's assistant and was inspired to continue the great writer's work. Pavlov writes in the tradition of great Russian novelists such as Dostoyevsky and Solzhenitsyn.
