No stranger to oppression himself, Kross writes about it with a poignancy devoid of anger. -- Adam Zamoyski He's almost alone in writing in the older European tradition of the large-scale historical novel. I'd argue that Kross is heir to the 'great' Russo-European 19th century novelists; his fiction has Tolstoyan sweep. On reading him, moreover, we rediscover that Estonia was always resolutely in Europe and not some obscure outpost this side of the Urals. -- Fiona Sampson He deserved a Nobel prize and would probably have got it had he written in any other language but Estonian. -- Neil Taylor * Guardian. * He's a marvellous novelist - his scope and depth make him a world writer - and they should just hurry up and give him the Nobel. -- Doris Lessing
