Publisher's Summary

In May 1937, a man in his early 30s waits by the lift of a Leningrad apartment block. He waits all through the night, expecting to be taken away to the Big House. Any celebrity he has known in the previous decade is no use to him now, and few who are taken to the Big House ever return.

The noise in his head

The rambling style creates a sense of the listener partaking of Shostakovich's mind. An excellent novel, convincingly performed by Daniel Philpott

Complex but Worthwhile

Not an easy read but worthwhile to understand Shostakovitch's life in Soviet Russia. Excellent narrator
