520    "A compact masterpiece dedicated to the Russian composer 
       Dmitri Shostakovich--Julian Barnes's first novel since his
       best-selling, Booker Prize-winning The Sense of an Ending.
       1936: Shostakovich, just thirty, fears for his livelihood 
       and his life. Stalin, hitherto a distant figure, has taken
       a sudden interest in his work and denounced his latest 
       opera. Now, certain he will be exiled to Siberia (or, more
       likely, shot dead on the spot), he reflects on his 
       predicament, his personal history, his parents, various 
       women and wives, his children all of those hanging in the 
       balance of his fate. And though a stroke of luck prevents 
       him from becoming yet another casualty of the Great Terror,
       for years to come he will be held fast under the thumb of 
       despotism: made to represent Soviet values at a cultural 
       conference in New York City, forced into joining the Party,
       and compelled, constantly, to weigh appeasing those in 
       power against the integrity of his music. Barnes elegantly
       guides us through the trajectory of Shostakovich's career,
       at the same time illuminating the tumultuous evolution of 
       the Soviet Union. The result is both a stunning portrait 
       of a relentlessly fascinating man and a brilliant 
       meditation on the meaning of art and its place in society"
