9780099468523: Ascent

Yefgenii Yeremin is a flyer and he is a phantom.

In the Korean War, he is the legendary ace dubbed 'Ivan the Terrible', shooting down more American jets than any other pilot in history. But the Soviet Union's involvement in Korea must be kept secret, so Yefgenii is exiled to a remote Arctic base, his name unknown, his victories uncelebrated.

But in 1964, a man arrives from Moscow, from the Space Committee, in search of a volunteer prepared to sacrifice everything for his country...

Review:

"In moments of intense action, we're with this protagonist every inch of the way, through every thought, dive, ache, smell, itch, tast and gastric movement... vertiginously thrilling" ( Observer)

"Hold on tight and enjoy the ride... Tremendous stuff" ( Independent)

" Ascent is a page turning story of a man's ambition to be the very best. Based on real events and using real people, it places this fictitious character in a period when space itself was there for the taking. Beautifully written, it's a book that deserves to be read" (Angela Cooke Daily Express)

"A Russian version of The Right Stuff... Riveting" ( Daily Telegraph)

"One of the most potent and unusual works of literary fiction I've read in years... Mercurio's Yefgenii is as real as anyone you've ever cared about. And care you will" (Michael Faber Guardian)

From the Publisher:

A truly stunning novel spare, powerful and ultimately awesome Ascent will propel Jed Mercurio into the first rank of British novelists.
