About this product
- Description<b>An utterly brilliant (<i>Library Journal</i>) new vel from the author of the award-winning <i>The Dream Life of Sukhav</i>. </b> The line begins to form on the whispered rumor that a famous exiled composer is returning to Russia to conduct his last symphony. Tickets will be limited. The concert date unkwn. Nameless strangers join the line, jostling for preferred position. But as the seasons change and the kiosk remains shuttered, these anymous souls evolve into a community. Bound together in their longing for something wonderful and miraculous, they allow themselves to dream. An utterly transformative work that speaks to the endurance of the human spirit, The Line confirms Grushin's place in the pantheon of today's most important new writers.
