A novel, and collection of short stories. Rivkin’s heroes are built on the Hobbes’ dictum ” Man is a wolf to man”.
The events take place in the old forests of Belarus in the 50s, and explore the role of morality and the soul of humanity.
Rivkin traces these values through various settings, from post-war life, to love, anti-human attitudes towards its own people of “the people’s government”, working relations and anti-Semitism in the former land of the Soviets.
