Despite the Falling Snow

by Shamim Sarif

Easy but moving read which gives a fascinating view of Russia in the Kruschev period.


'It's a funny thing,' he says. 'Even though it has been such a long time, sometimes I can still remember how I felt in those weeks after I first met Katya. The excitement, the dizziness, the agony of meeting the person you had never believed existed .... That is what I remember most about my wife. How very much I adored her.'

That much is true, he thinks. All the rest, the betrayals, the nightmares, the waking horror, the guilt, he has packed away over the course of the years .... No regrets. About anything.
