‘A dazzling display of Russian magical realism’
‘I first encountered VITA NOSTRA in 2009, and then, as now, I was stunned by what I read – not just by the story, which was a revelation to me in itself, but also by the vividness and fluency and power of Hersey's translation. VITA NOSTRA has become a powerful influence on my own writing. It's a book that has the potential to become a modern classic of its genre, and I couldn’t be more excited to see it get the global audience in English it so richly deserves’
Lev Grossman, New York Times bestselling author of THE MAGICIANS

I'm super keen for the remaining books in the series to be translated into English too.

The story follows Sasha, a young woman in Russia who is compelled by a sinister stranger to attend the "Institute of Special Technologies". In this shadowy institution even the students do not know what they are studying, or where it will lead them, until their transformation is complete.
This is one of the best books I have ever read! Yes, I enjoy stories—regardless of its genre—that standout; "Vita Nostra" is an example of a story that takes its genre to a higher level. As I read the story and the events surrounding Sasha’s education, her growth into adulthood, and her disgruntled interactions with her family, I realized "Vita Nostra" is one of the best examples of what speculative fiction could be! The idea that there is more to our mundane world is nothing new to readers of the genre, but the way the authors present that notion through their writing leaves you in awe of everything you’ll read in this novel!
