The Star Chernobyl is a powerful and timely novel about one of the world s worst disasters, as seen through the eyes of three Russian sisters.
Anna is in Sweden when the disaster occurs. Increasingly anxious to understand the truth in the face of conflicting media reports, she tries to contact her sister Anastasia to learn the true nature of events. The third sister, Alenka, is working in Chernobyl; and it is intense concern for her well-being which provokes Anastasia s determination to find her. As she enters the Dead Zone of Chernobyl, events and characters become more desperate and bizarre, while Anastasia s mission assumes tragic proportions.
The Star Chernobyl is a devastating critique of government-controlled media, as well as a sympathetic portrayal of how the human spirit tries to triumph over cataclysmic events, even when struggling against the denial of basic freedoms. Following her success with The Women s Decameron, Julia Voznesenskaya has written an astonishing novel whose subject cannot fail both to move and disturb.
