9781473213074: Empire V: The Prince of Hamlet

Roman thought he'd found the perfect opportunity to rebel. He may have been wrong.

He awakens strapped to a set of parallel bars in a richly appointed sitting room, and begins a conversation with a masked man which will change his life. His world has been a facade - one which the mysterious Brahma is about to tear away.

A stunning novel about the real world, and about the hidden channels of power behind the scenes, EMPIRE V is a post-modern satirical novel exploring the cults and corruption of politics, banking and power. And not only are these cults difficult to join - it turns out they may be impossible to leave . . .

About the Author:

Born in 1962 in Moscow, Victor Pelevin has swiftly been recognised as the leading Russian novelist of the new generation. He studied at Moscow's Gorky Institute of Literature, and is one of the few novelists today who writes seriously about what is happening in contemporary Russia.
His work has been translated into fifteen languages and his novels OMON RA, THE LIFE OF INSECTS, THE CLAY MACHINE-GUN and BABYLON, and two collections of short stories have been published in English to great acclaim.

Review:

A book rich in well-observed satirical jibes, zingy conversational duels and evocative description―Strange Horizons

The core strength of Pelevin's writing is its unruly, suggestive energy―The Independent

Pelevin is blessed with a distinctive mix of eloquence and nervous energy, inventive storytelling and subversive wit―Publishers Weekly

A joy to read . . . Complex ideas are rendered simply and organically, never disturbing the narrative flow―The New York Times
