From the Back Cover:

In FICTIONS AND LIES, a writer dies suddenly, in fear of KGB pursuit. His last manuscript, which is thought to be dangerously anti-Soviet, is missing from his apartment, so immediately becomes the object of a rapid police search. As it is traced, whom will it implicate, and what else will it reveal? Deftly, we are led into a world where right and wrong are problematic in ways we never experienced in the West, where integrity and self-respect may prove costly for one's family and friends, where compromise may prove unexpectedly difficult to avoid, and yet where truth and honesty matter all the more for being so elusive.

About the Author:

Born in Odessa in 1954, Irina Ratushinkskaya is one of the leading contemporary Russian poets. She spent four years in a labour camp for the religious themes in her poetry, deemed 'anti-Soviet agitation and propaganda'. She managed to smuggle out her poems and after a series of hunger strikes, Irina was released and came to Britain.
