Praise

“Vivid and scarifying. . . . The book gnaws at one’s memory. Amis tries to imagine history with the intimacy and specificity that the greatest historical novelists, including Tolstoy, have always presumed to seek for it.” —The Washington Post Book World“Arguably his most powerful book yet. . . . A[n] unrelenting and deeply affecting performance: A bullet train of a novel that barrels deep into the heart of darkness that was the Soviet gulag and takes the reader along on an unnerving journey into one of history’s most harrowing chapters.” —The New York TimesHouse of Meetings reminds us of Dostoyevsky. . . . A whole dome of meanings, a specific emotional world–hunger, desire, disgust, rottenness–rises around us.” —The New Yorker“Very fine, very moving and easily Amis’ most accessible fiction since The Information.”—The Seattle Times
