It is the late fifteenth century and a village healer in Russia called Laurus is powerless to help his beloved as she dies in childbirth, unwed and without having received communion. Devastated and desperate, he sets out on a journey in search of redemption. But this is no ordinary journey: it is one that spans ages and countries, and which brings him face-to-face with a host of unforgettable, eccentric characters and legendary creatures from the strangest medieval bestiaries. Laurus’s travels take him from the Middle Ages to the Plague of 1771, where as a holy fool he displays miraculous healing powers, to the political upheavals of the late-twentieth century. At each transformative stage of his journey he becomes more revered by the church and the people, until he decides, one day, to return to his home village to lead the life of a monastic hermit – not realizing that it is here that he will face his most difficult trial yet. Laurus is a remarkably rich novel about the eternal themes of love, loss, self-sacrifice and faith, from one of Russia’s most exciting and critically acclaimed novelists.

"A quirky, ambitious book ... Eugene Vodolazkin succeeds gloriously." Janet Fitch, "LARB" "In LAURUS, Vodolazkin aims directly at the heart of the Russian religious experience and perhaps even at that maddeningly elusive concept that is cherished to the point of cliche: the Russian soul. Ken Kalfus in "The New Yorker" Brilliant storytelling ... a uniquely lavish, multilayered work. "Booklist" LAURUS is without a doubt one of the most moving and mysterious books you will read in this or any other year. " The American Conservative" A timeless epic ... pointed, touching, and at times humorous, unpredictably straying from the path and leading readers along a wild chase through time, language, and medieval Europe. "Asymptote Journal" An epic journey novel in all the best traditions. There are countless colorful characters, exciting twists of fate, and profound truths in the protagonist s words and deeds "The Idiot" meets" Canterbury Tales" meets" The Odyssey." Highly recommended. " Russian Life Magazine " "Love, faith, and a quest for atonement are the driving themes of an epic, prizewinning Russian novel that, while set in the medieval era, takes a contemporary look at the meaning of time.... With flavors of Umberto Eco and "The Canterbury Tales," this affecting, idiosyncratic novel ... is an impressive achievement." "Kirkus Reviews" "

At this point in my life span, developed under pentecostal doctrine, I believe that world Immigrants as it applies to all human beings on planet earth, crave world peace in silence but with unflinching supplications by those who take solace in the tenet that its creation is by an invisible active force I submit as God Almighty. The same God we all worship but through different religious orthodoxies. Ruefully, world peace is illusive to mankind because we distant ourselves from the Creator with adamant firmness in our spiritual understanding of the possibilty that we are actually descendants of the first pair, Adam and Eve, God created in His likeness in the Garden of Eden, which history does nor antagonize its existence once upon a time in Iraq. Hence, we become Immigrants wherever nomadic activities of ancient past mandated our sendentary habitation and thus gave birth to multiple cultures, ethnicities, religions, which particularly propels hatred within mankind, making peace unattainable. Ergo, religious conflicts, racial prejudice from which ugly manifestations of hate crimes towards one another, require divine intervention from the Creator for amicable solution. Since the morning of the first day of Y2K which was supposed to usher in descension of a Majestic Humanitarian Savior Jesus Christ, shook up my pentecostal affirmance for lack of reality of the divine visit, any human being who conjurs the three main human imperfection stigmas of dual religious attributes especially between Islam and Christianity, and multi racial blessings cum any omen to show the world how to totally forgive each other for centuries old human imperfection of racial atrocities towards each other, such person tickles my fancy for possible world peace. A person with such spiritual and natural attibutes is President Barack Hussein Obama.
