Editorial Reviews

Requiem for a Lost Empire, engagingly narrated in fast-paced tones by Ken Kliban, and translated here from its original French, is an epic tale - spanning 8 decades - that follows the tumultuous times of personal strife, raging political upheaval, and brutal economic struggles for three generations of a single Russian family during the 20th century.
At times a disturbing look into the cold mechanisms of a world political power and the callousness that comes with it, this challenging and rewarding listen is also a redemptive triumph of the human spirit in times of great tragedy.

Publisher's Summary

Makine's most ambitious, complex, and uncompromising work is a three-generation epic set against the wide canvas of Russia's turbulent last eighty years, from Czarist times to the fall of Communism.
We follow Nicholas, the protagonist's grandfather, from the brutal battle between the Reds and the Whites in the 1920s to the moment when Pavel, his grandson, is recruited by the KGB as a spy. In this "unpausable" audiobook, the reader is swept into a Graham Greene-style thriller that opens up like a sinister Russian doll.
