About the Author: Andreï Makine

Andreï Makine was born in Krasnoyarsk, Soviet Union on 10 September 1957 and grew up in city of Penza, a provincial town about 440 miles south-east of Moscow. As a boy, having acquired familiarity with France and its language from his French-born grandmother (it is not certain whether Makine had a French grandmother; in later interviews he claimed to have learnt French from a friend), he wrote poems in both French and his native Russian.

In 1987, he went to France as member of teacher's exchange program and decided to stay. He was granted political asylum and was determined to make a living as a writer in French. However, Makine had to present his first manuscripts as translations from Russian to overcome publishers' skepticism that a newly arrived exile could write so fluently in a second language. After disappointing reactions to his first two novels, it took eight months to find a publisher for his fourth, Le testament français. Finally published in 1995 in France, the novel became the first in history to win both the Prix Goncourt and the Prix Medicis plus the Goncourt des Lycéens.

Andreï Makine ouvre son roman sur une scène rêvée de notre Occident. Un fantasme qui nous fera mesurer l'étendue de notre dépaysement.

Les personnages appartiennent à un autre monde : le pays du grand blanc, au bord du fleuve Amour.

Dans ces lieux de silence, la vie pourrait se confondre avec de simples battements de cœur si chaque mouvement de l'âme n'apportait sa révélation. Alors, le désir naît, de la sensualité des corps comme de la communion avec la nature offerte. L'amour a l'odeur des neiges vierges dans la profondeur de la taïga.
Soudain, tout est bouleversé.

L'Occident fait signe. D'abord un train qui passe, le mythique Transsibérien. Puis un film français, vision d'une existence éblouissante, appel peuplé de grandes actions et de créatures sublimes.

Le vertige d'une autre histoire née sur les rives du fleuve Amour, aux berges de l'adolescence.
