    DescriptionErotic, brutal, mysterious and moving, The Zero Train takes place at a lonely Soviet railway settlement run by the secret police. Employees suspect something sinister about the unknown cargo of a sealed 100-car train; they become increasingly obsessed with the provenance of the Zero Train. The denoument leads to madness and murder. The Zero Train is also a dense web of symbols examining the nature of life lived in the service of an ideal neither known or understood -- a study of the ordinary individual under Stalinism.

    Review text
    `The Zero Train is the most remarkable book I've read this year. It has been hugely successful in Russia, and was shortlisted for the Russian Booker prize. This chilling, brilliant and deeply moving novel goes to the heart of what Stalinism did to individual lives.` Helen Dunmore in The Observer Books of the Year.
