Description

Tom Bullough's "Konstantin" is a mesmerising novel about how the imagination can inspire the individual to greatness. 1867, Ryazan, a Russian city in winter. Ten-year-old Konstantin, deafened by scarlet fever, dreams of flight - escaping to Moscow, fleeing to the silent stars. And his daring visions, pregnant with humanity's future, will take him further than anyone could believe. Moving from wolf-infested forests to the brothels of Moscow, from village life to the wondrous Age of Steam, from appalling tragedy to the discovery of a great love, Konstantin tells the beguiling story of a man who imagined the unimaginable: turning the dream of space travel into a reality. As vivid and evocative as Hilary Mantel's "Wolf Hall" and David Mitchell's "The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet", "Konstantin" is a story of man, nature, and the limitless power of the imagination. Praise for "Konstantin": "Convincing, lyrical. Bullough has set Konstantin squarely before us as a living, thinking, ingenious human being". (John Banville). "Konstantin is that rare creature, the practical dreamer, a hero at the dawn of modernity. Beautifully written ...a real achievement". (Andrew Miller, author of "Pure"). "Enchanting, wonderfully eloquent. A very alluring read". ("Time Out"). Tom Bullough was born in 1975 and is the author of two previous novels. He lives in Breconshire, in mid-Wales, with his wife and young son.
