9780099485094: Byzantium Endures: Between the Wars, Vol. 1: Pyat Quartet

Maxim Arturovitch Pyatnitski, a student at St. Petersburg, discovers the pleasures of sex and cocaine and glimpses a sophisticated world beyond his horizons before the storm of the October revolution breaks, from which he is deflected into more immediate concerns, caught up in the rip-tide of history.

About the Author:

Michael Moorcock has written more than eighty books, fiction and non-fiction, including The Cornelius Quartet, Gloriana, Mother London and the legendary Pyat Quartet: Byzantium Endures, The Laughter of Carthage, Jerusalem Commands and The Vengeance of Rome. He is also the author of The Condition of Muzak which won the Guardian Fiction Prize, and Mother London, which was shortlisted for the Whitbread Prize. He lives in France and Texas.

Review:

"There are those of us who have button-holed strangers on the Underground and raved about Michael Moorcock's masterpieces, Byzantium Endures and The Laughter of Carthage" Sunday Telegraph "His is the grand, messy flux itself, in all its heroic vulgarity, its unquenchable optimism, its enthusiasm for the inexhaustible variousness of things. Posterity will certainly give him that due place in English literature" -- Angela Carter Guardian "The particular journey into hell that Moorcock gives us in the Pyat Quartet is as terrifying and argumentative as that taken by Dante in The Divine Comedy. And in spite of the fact that 'comedy' means 'story with a happy ending', it is also like Dante in being brilliantly, horribly funny" Time Out
