Nicolai Lilin was born in 1981 and grew up in the small republic of Transnistria, which declared its independence in 1990 but has never been recognised. Nicolai left home to fight in the Russian army against the Chechens. He later lived in Ireland, before moving to Italy, where he continues to work as a tattooist. Siberian Education was a major bestseller in Lilin's home country of Italy and was published in the UK in May 2010 to critical acclaim. The author lives in Turin.Review:
Lilin's astonishing account of his life takes you into some very strange worlds; frightening, violent and yet with spirited moments of redemption which both offer hope and keep you reading ... a breath-taking memoir.' - Misha Glenny, Mail on Sunday [on SIBERIAN EDUCATION] 'Force yourself to forget about categories of good and evil, you have to just be there and read ... produces a thrill of pleasure that is hard to forget.' - Roberto Saviano, author of GOMORRAH, [on SIBERIAN EDUCATION] 'A marvellous and illuminating book ...This story makes most of what we call true crime writing seem insipid and effete.' - Irvine Welsh, [on SIBERIAN EDUCATION]
