Moscow, 1986. In a run-down apartment block, a piano prodigy practices silently to avoid disturbing the neighbours. In a factory, his aunt makes car parts, hiding her dissident past. In the hospital, a talented surgeon buries himself in his work. And in a village in Ukraine, a boy wakes up to a sky of deepest crimson. In the fields, the cattle's ears are dripping blood. Ten miles away, at the Chernobyl Power Plant, something unimaginable has happened. Now their lives will change forever.
 
All That Is Solid Melts Into Air is an electrifying novel about extraordinary lives in remarkable times.
