Konstantin

by Tom Bullough - £9.99  Penguin Putnam Inc (Penguin USA) (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780670920938 | ISBN 10: 0670920932

Tom Bullough's Konstantin is a mesmerising novel about how the imagination can inspire the individual to greatness.
 
1867, Ryazan, a Russian city in winter. Ten-year-old Konstantin, deafened by scarlet fever, dreams of flight - escaping to Moscow, fleeing to the silent stars. And his daring visions, pregnant with humanity's future, will take him further than anyone could believe. Moving from wolf-infested forests to the brothels of Moscow, from village life to the wondrous Age of Steam, from appalling tragedy to the discovery of a great love, Konstantin tells the beguiling story of a man who imagined the unimaginable: turning the dream of space travel into a reality.
 
As vivid and evocative as Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall and David Mitchell's The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, Konstantin is a story of man, nature, and the limitless power of the imagination.
