Sinopsis: Siberia 1919. In the outer reaches of a country recently torn apart by civil war live a small Christian sect and its enigmatic leader, Balashov. Stationed nearby is a regiment of Czech soldiers, desperate to get home but on the losing side if the recent conflict. Uncertainty prevails. Into this isolated community trudges Samarin, an escapee from Russia's northernmost gulag. Immediately apprehended, he is brought before Captain Matula, the regiment's megalomaniac commander. But the stranger's arrival gas also caught the attention of others, including Anna, a beautiful young war widow. And when the local Shaman lies dead, suspicion and terror engulf the little town...James Meek's novel is a breathtaking contemporary fable staged against one if the most remote landscapes on earth. The remarkable cast of characters and Meek's uncanny ability to evoke the period bring to mind the work of the great Russian masters. The People's Act of Love is a magnificent piece of storytelling, an unforgettable novel and a deeply satisfying read.

Críticas: "This is a gripping, troubling epic about the perils of human capacity and its necessary limits." -- Metro, July 7th, 2005

A quite extraordinary novel. The language is so fresh and crisp and sparkling. What a narrative! What a story! -- Philip Pullman

More than a thriller and much more than an homage to the Russian novel. -- M John Harrison, Daily Telegraph

Spellbinding. Though set in the past, feels like the most contemporary fiction you'll ever read... a truly great novel. -- Irvine Welsh, Guardian, 9 June 2005

What is most striking about this ambitious novel is the sheer quality of the writing. -- Maggie Gee, Sunday Times
