Review

He's a marvellous novelist - his scope and depth make him a world writer - and they should just hurry up and give him the Nobel (Doris Lessing.)

He deserved a Nobel prize and would probably have got it had he written in any other language but Estonian (Neil Taylor Guardian.)

He's almost alone in writing in the older European tradition of the large-scale historical novel. I'd argue that Kross is heir to the 'great' Russo-European 19th century novelists; his fiction has Tolstoyan sweep. On reading him, moreover, we rediscover that Estonia was always resolutely in Europe and not some obscure outpost this side of the Urals (Fiona Sampson.)

No stranger to oppression himself, Kross writes about it with a poignancy devoid of anger (Adam Zamoyski.)

Book Description

The story of a man who rose from peasant stock to become Estonia's most famous medieval chronicler - The first novel in a historical trilogy by Estonia's most famous writer
