Description
"The most patently sci-fi work of Antoine Volodine's to be translated into English, Radiant Terminus takes place in a Tarkovskian landscape after the fall of the Second Soviet Union. Most of humanity has been destroyed thanks to a number of nuclear meltdowns, but a few communes remain, including one run by Solovyei, a psychotic father with the ability to invade people's dreams--including those of his daughters--and torment them for thousands of years. When a group of damaged individuals seek safety from this nuclear winter in Solovyei's commune, a plot develops to overthrow him, end his reign of mental abuse, and restore humanity. Fantastical, unsettling, and occasionally funny, Radiant Terminus is a key entry in Volodine's epic literary project that--with its broad landscape, ambitious vision, and interlocking characters and ideas--calls to mind the best of David Mitchell"--
