Snowdrop. 1.An early flowering bulbous plant, having a white pendent flower. 2.Moscow slang. A corpse that lies buried or hidden in the winter snows, emerging only in the thaw
SNOWDROPS by A.D. Miller is an intense psychological drama that echoes sophisticated entertainments like Gorky Park and The Talented Mr. Ripley.
Miller was the Moscow correspondent for The Economist from 2004-2007 and is currently an editor in its London office.
“Masterful debut…A mesmerizing tale of a man seduced by a culture he fancies himself above, Miller’s novel is both a nuanced character study and a fascinating look at the complexities of Russian society.” —Booklist
“Miller’s uncluttered prose and feel for the city’s Wild West atmosphere are pleasures.” —Seattle Times
“Tight, compelling…a totally gripping first novel.” —The Times (London)
