Summary
1958. In a dorm room in Moscow, a young writer in woken by the sound of angry voices on the radio. Through the fog of a hangover he hears the news that a novel called Doctor Zhivago has won the Nobel Prize. There is uproar. The author, Boris Pasternak, faces exile, the press hound him, and protestors line the streets. A few days earlier the young writer found a copy of this book - could those simple pages really be so dangerous? Based on Ismail Kadare's own experience, 'Twilight of the Eastern Gods' is a fictionalised recreation of his time as a student at the prestigious Gorky Institute for World Literature
