Soerine, a deformed female dwarf from Denmark, is given as a gift to Tsar Peter the Great, who is smitten by her freakishness and intellect. Against her will, the Tsar takes Soerine to St. Petersburg, where she becomes a jester in his court. There, she lives a life that both compels and repels her. Soerine eventually gives in to the attentions of Lukas, the Tsar s favorite dwarf, and carves out an existence for herself amidst the squalor and lice-ridden world of dwarfs in the early 18th century. In this inhospitable milieu, Soerine s intelligence and detached wit provide her some small measure of protection until disaster strikes in the shape of a priest who wants to save her. The Tsar s Dwarf is a masterfully told and brilliantly translated novel about aberration, endurance, and the human condition."
