"The People's Act of Love has a timeless quality; it will be read, referenced, studied and talked about for years to come." Irvine Welsh
"A great book, rich and illuminating and impossibly imaginative." BBC Review "This is a book to read." The Times "His book is a humdinger; brace yourself for a shock or two, but be sure to read The People's Act of Love." The Spectator "This remarkable and ambitious book succeeds as a savagely colourful, always-astonishing entertainment of elegant and bold storytelling." Evening Standard "A quite extraordinary novel!" Philip Pullman "An exceptional event in English literature." Anthony Beevor "A big, bold, thrillingly different story told with uncanny authority." Michel Faber "By turns gruesome, beguiling and beautiful. I know I've found my novel of the year." Alan Warner"

In 1919 Siberia, in the outer reaches of a country recently torn apart by civil war, lives a small Christian sect and its enigmatic leader, Balashov. Stationed in their midst is a company of Czech soldiers, on the losing side of the recent conflict and desperate to get home. Into this isolated community trudges Samarin, an escapee from Russia's northernmost prison. His arrival intrigues many of the locals, including Anna Petrovna, a beautiful young war widow, but when the local shaman is found dead, suspicion and terror engulf the little town..."The People's Act of Love" is an epic drama of desire and sacrifice, a grand tale for modern times.
