Dreams of My Russian Summers


Curious if anyone has read this or other books by Andrei Makine. He is considered one of the top contemporary Russian writers. Dreams was his first novel to gain international attention, after it had won numerous French awards under the title, Le Testament Francais.

  1. I read this book several years ago and loved it.Oddly enough I read it in Winter but I haven't read any of his other work.

  2. I read them all and met the author twice. He is not considered as one of the top Russian writers, simply because he does not write in Russian. He writes in French and took French citizenship also. He left USSR in 1987...
