"This tale of a young Russian student whose obsession with the destroyed Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow brings unwanted attention from the political authorities is a truly excellent read, beautifully written, with a wealth of engrossing background material on Russian history, language, culture and architecture. It combines erudition with first-rate storytelling and is further enhanced by the device of the intrusive narrator. With its increasing mood of sadness and loss it makes for a most compelling and memorable novel."
