People's Act Of Love


About the Book

Praised in over a dozen countries around the world, longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, named a Globe and Mail Book of the Year and distinguished as a national bestseller, The People’s Act of Love has been compared to the works of such Russian masters as Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky. In a Siberian town caught between a zealous cult and bullying soldiers, a stranger named Samarin arrives. Claiming to be an escapee from an isolated prison camp, pursued in his flight by a bloodthirsty cannibal, he unleashes a storm of suspicion and terror. The People’s Act of Love is an epic drama of desire and sacrifice, full of hot blood and magnetic characters, played out against one of the most remote landscapes on earth.
