Meet Nicolai Lilin – the last of a small and tight-knit community of what he terms ‘honest criminals’. Orinigally from Siberia, but deported to Transnistria – an uncreognised and self-proclaimed republic – by Stalin, the ‘Urkas’ are an insular fraternity: distrustful of outsiders and violently opposed to any authority.
A huge bestseller in Nicolai’s current home country, Italy, Siberian Education is an extraordinary snapshot of a world that no longer exists – part Siberian hunter-gatherer, part Mafia, and wholly unique.
Nicolai’s story is truly extraordinary, and we’re honored to present it.
