Description - Devil's Midnight by Yuri Kapralov

Tale of suspense and romance in the Russian Civil War. Paperback reissue of Kapralov's epic Russian Civil War novel. August 1919-February 1920: the Red Army is making its final, triumphant surge across the tortured remains of the Old Russian Empire. For the defiantly apolitical, artists and aesthetes at the heart of Devil's Midnight, it is a time of disruption and apocalypse, their lives pulled between narrow escapes, desperate intimacy and horrific violence. Kapralov depicts the desperate struggles of his characters with a perfect balance of intensity and nonchalance. In the end, the conflicts, both personal and political, converge toward a final showdown in the frozen shadows of the Caucasus, with Russia herself surviving as the novel's real hero, a place of darkness and mystery and hope.
