The Reconstruction

Rein Raud (Author) Adam Cullen (Translator)
Out of stock. Usually delivers within 4 weeks.


For five years, Enn Padrik has postponed the investigation into the

apparently religiously inspired suicides of his daughter and her

friends at a commune near Viljandi, but now he can postpone it no

longer. He must travel all over Estonia and even as far as France

interviewing anyone who might remember anything relevant.

Some of these people seem to have been waiting for him, others

refuse to talk. And little by little, a bigger and quite unexpected

picture starts to emerge. From the late 1970s through 2011, The

Reconstruction spans the lives of two generations, going from the

late 1970s through 2011, narrating the changes in the wider world

and Estonian society in particular, the transition from a world of

right and wrong to a world where most things are neither, but the

yearning for absolute truths still won't go away.
