Inhaltsangabe: From the author of Dreams of My Russian Summers, Once Upon the River Love and The Crime of Olga Arbyelina,a novel in which the harsh realities of postwar Russian life are tempered by the qualities of human warmth and family bonds. They are virtual brothers, Arkady and Alyosha, young pioneers in Stalin's postwar world, marching to the clarion call of socialism, to the stirring beat of the drums. The future, they are assured, is bright and beautiful. But what, then, are those endless miles of barbed wire they encounter everywhere along their route? This is the moving, two-generational tale of two families, those of Yakov Zinger and Pyotr Yevdokimov, fathers of the two young pioneers. Inseparable, the two men have been through the grueling war against the Germans, with all its horror and senseless carnage. Yakov--or Yasha, as he was known--emerged physically intact but scarred forever ""from the moment he had been lifted out of a mountain of frozen bodies at a camp in liberated Poland""; Pyotr, a skilled sniper who operated behind the German lines, lost both his legs, not at the hands of the Germans but as a result of an artillery ""mistake"" by his own forces. Together, in these postwar, Cold War years, the two families try to piece together their shattered lives. Arkady and Alyosha grow up and go their separate ways, Arkady to Leningrad and mathematics school, Alyosha the narrator to the Savorov military academy, later to become a doctor, whose first assignment is the Afghanistan war. Eventually Arkady emigrates to the West, to which, in the opening pages of this masterful novel, Alyosha addresses his early remembrances.

Inhaltsangabe: Addressing himself to his childhood friend Arkadi from exile in Paris, Alyosha recreates their happy years in a village commune outside Leningrad in the 60s, when the sky was always blue and each summer they marched with drum and trumpet at communist youth camp, their eyes set on the glorious future promised by the propaganda machine - until they learnt the full horror of what their parents had suffered during the war and under Stalin, and began to see through the lies.
