First press quotes for Samson and Nadezhda:

»In a pace at once breathtaking and yet still rooted in reality, Andrey Kurkov narrates the adventures of his anti-hero Samson, staying hot on his heels through horrors and simple everyday life alike.« 
Simone Dattenberger / Münchner Merkur, Munich

»Kurkov finished the book before the war, reading it now induces a double bellyache.«
Meike Schnitzler / Brigitte, Hamburg (five stars out of five)

»Kurkov has written a true pageturner.«
Stephan Ozsváth / Inforadio rbb, Berlin

»One thing is for sure: Kurkov is being read, and popular historical tales are far more influential than the studies of academic historians.«
Uli Hufen / WDR 3, Cologne
