Modern Rasputin

by Rosa Lyster

Eclectic, eccentric and eloquent, Modern Rasputin establishes Rosa Lyster as one of South Africa's most exciting young writers. Diving into a (not entirely made-up) world of precocious children, minor royalty, Russian prisons, and electrocuting water faucets, Lyster's debut is a testament to the wild machinations of imagination and the soft poignancies of friendship, and provides one of the most unpredictable and cosmopolitan collections from South Africa in years.
