When Snow is Falling
Eksmo. Moscow 2019. 180 pages

Dust and ashes darken the sun in the northern hemisphere after a terrible war. For the few survivors it is getting colder and colder. Kornei and the Old Guy are heading south, where it is supposed to be warmer. In contrast with the Old Guy, who is ruthless in his efforts only to save his own skin, Kornei seems a naive fool who still dreams of a better life for all. But their march, accompanied by danger, only seems to lead them into a much more final catastrophe.

Parallel to the Kornei and the Old Guy’s escape, we witness scenes following a crucifixion, where an apparently alien being, who possesses supernatural powers, asks the crucified man about the future and redemption.

In the spirit of: The Master and Margarita by M. Bulgakov, The Road by Cormac McCarthy, The Minds of Billy Milligan by Daniel Keyes.
