National Book Critics Choice Award Finalist in Fiction
"Kirkus Reviews"Best Fiction Books of 2015

Praise for"The Tsar of Love and Techno"
[E]xtraordinary Each story is a gem in itself. But the book is greater than its parts, an almost unbearably moving exploration of the importance of love, the pull of family, the uses and misuses of history, and the need to reclaim the past by understanding who you really are and what really happened He starts this miracle of a book by showing us how a system can erase the past, the truth, even its citizens. He ends by demonstrating, through his courageous, flawed, deeply human characters, how individual people can restore the things that have been taken away. And if you ve been worrying that you ve lost your faith in the emotionally transformative power of fiction Mr. Marra will restore that, too.
Sarah Lyall, "The New York Times"
Remarkable Marra is a gifted writer with the energy and the ambition to explore the lives of characters whose experiences and whose psyches might seem, until we read his work, so distant from our own. Reading his work is like watching the restoration the reappearance, on the page of those whom history has erased.
" "Francine Prose, "Washington Post"
This book will burn itself into your heart. It s a collection of interlocking short stories that stand alone but also fit together, piece by delicate piece, to form an astonishing whole whose artfulness becomes increasingly clear as it goes on."The Tsar of Love and Techno"swoops around in time and place, beginning in Stalinist Russia and ending somewhere in outer space in the near future. It s funny, moving and beautiful, the perfect thing to read.
"New York Times"
Audacious [an] ambitious and fearless [book], one that offers so much to enjoy and admire...Marra s far-ranging, risky and explicitly political book marks him as a writer with an original, even singular sensibility.
"New York Times Book Review"
Genius...what makes this (dare I say) masterpiece so stunning is Marra s clear love for his subject and insistence on infusing beauty into even the darkest places It s nothing short of extraordinary.
"San Francisco Chronicle"
Powerful [an] ingenious book."
"Wall Street Journal"
"Marra s nine stories, cunningly set out like strewn mosaic tiles that keep self-rearranging until they cohere into a complex, cathartic whole, demand to be read in order...Marra here emerges with an oxygenizing wisdom and an arsenal of wit as inexhaustible as it is unlikely.
"Boston Globe"
Dazzling with its multiple narratives and recurring characters it certainly recalls both Jennifer Egan's "A Visit From the Goon Squad" (a novel) and Elizabeth Strout's "Olive Kitteridge"(short stories). By the time you reach Marra's astonishing final story about Kolya, "The End" set, a dateline tells us, in "Outer Space, Year Unknown" the book has achieved a heart-rending cumulative power.
Tom Beer, "Newsday"
"Private acts of dissidence (a smuggled mix tape, say) become heroic in Anthony Marra's era-spanning portrait of the USSR."
" "Megan O'Grady, "Vogue"
Cobbled together as a sort of mixtape itself (with four stories under Side A, four under Side B, and a single-story intermission), Marra s latest work is tender, touching, haunting at times and humorous at others in short, a feat.
" "Thomas Harlander, " Los Angeles Magazine"
The Tsar of Love and Techno is inventively structured, emotionally resonant, superbly rendered.
Jane Ciabattari, BBC.com
" The Tsar of Love and Techno"is an intricately structured and powerful collection[and]showcases Marra s wit and his gift for unforgettable details "The Tsar of Love and Techno"is the work of an elegant and generous writer.
" Bookpage"
"Some books are love at first read, and this is one of them. Anthony Marra, author of"A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, "delivers his first collection of intimately tied stories (it kind of reads as a novel, actually), arranged into Side A and B and Intermission. With language as precise as a razor blade, "Tsar"takes us throughout Russia from 1937 to the present with a connected group of characters who, through their explosive escapades, demonstrate the peculiarities and nuances of life. It has everything: humor, action, suspense, drama I'm going to go ahead and call it brilliant."
Meredith Turits, Bustle.com
"Marra, in between bursts of acidic humor, summons the terror, pollutedlandscapes, and diminished hopes of generations of Russians in a tragic and haunting collection."
" Booklist "(starred)
"With generosity of spirit and a surprising dash of humor, these artfully woven narratives coalesce into a majestic whole."
" Library Journal"(starred)
Powerful strikingly reimagines a nearly a century of changes in Russia. [T]he book s brilliance and humor are laced with the somber feeling that the country is allergic to evolution."
" Kirkus Reviews"(starred)
As in his acclaimed novel, Marra finds in Chechnya an inspiration for his uniquely funny, tragic, bizarre, and memorable fiction.
" Publishers Weekly"(starred)
"Love and betrayal reverberate through these nine deftly linked stories... With this collection, Marra has created a stunning portrait of a place and its indelible inhabitants."
Dawn Raffel, "More"
We know we are in the realm of fiction, but Marra makes it all feel viscerally real. He has mined modern Russian history for all it is worth to create a masterful novel.
" Russian Life Magazine"
Treat yourself to these wise works of art set in Siberia, the USSR, and the heart.

"" "New York Times"
A flash in the heavens that makes you look up and believe in miracles....Here, in fresh, graceful prose, is a profound story that dares to be as tender as it is ghastly, a story about desperate lives in a remote land that will quickly seem impossibly close and important....I haven t been so overwhelmed by a novel in years. At the risk of raising your expectations too high, I have to say you simply must read this book.
Ron Charles, "Washington Post"
Extraordinary....a 21st century War and Peace....Marra seems to derive his astral calm in the face of catastrophe directly from Tolstoy.
Madison Smartt Bell, "New York Times Book Review"
"A Constellation of Vital Phenomena"is ambitious and intellectually restless....[Marra is] a lover not a fighter, a prose writer who resembles the Joseph Heller of"Catch-22"and the Jonathan Safran Foer of"Everything Is Illuminated."
Dwight Garner, "New York Times"
Over and over again, this is an examination of the ways in which many broken pieces come together to make a new whole. In exquisite imagery, Marra tends carefully to the twisted strands of grace and tragedy....Everything in"A Constellation of Vital Phenomena."..is dignified with a hoping, aching heartbeat.
Ramona Ausubel, "San Francisco Chronicle""

Tom Beer, "Newsday"
Like Nabokov, Marra is a writer for whom essential truths are found in detail The nine interlocking stories grip from the off with their dry tone and meticulously realised worlds of totalitarian life and its aftermath. Characters appear, disappear and reappear throughout the collection, graceful as a troupe of dancers in the author s assured hands. His stories have subtle nods to the Russian greats (Chekhov s gun, the lady with the lapdog) and more overt echoes of the writing of Kafka and Orwell in the tales of totalitarian living.

Reseña del editor:

From the "New York Times" bestselling author of "A Constellation of Vital Phenomena" dazzling, poignant, and lyrical interwoven stories about family, sacrifice, the legacy of war, and the redemptive power of art.
This stunning, exquisitely written collection introduces a cast of remarkable characters whose lives intersect in ways both life-affirming and heartbreaking. A 1930s Soviet censor painstakingly corrects offending photographs, deep underneath Leningrad, bewitched by the image of a disgraced prima ballerina. A chorus of women recount their stories and those of their grandmothers, former gulag prisoners who settled their Siberian mining town. Two pairs of brothers share a fierce, protective love. Young men across the former USSR face violence at home and in the military. And great sacrifices are made in the name of an oil landscape unremarkable except for the almost incomprehensibly peaceful past it depicts. In stunning prose, with rich character portraits and a sense of history reverberating into the present, "The Tsar of Love and Techno" is a captivating work from one of our greatest new talents."
