"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" "

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.
