More on the book:

João Cerqueiro's latest work "Perestroika" isn't just a novel; it's a resonant exploration of the human condition set against the canvas of recent European history. It challenges readers to ponder the very essence of truth, revenge, and the quest for redemption. Unique in its fusion of historical and literary fiction, it stands as a singular work in a league of its own.

For readers who revel in the rich tapestry of historical and literary fiction, and those with an interest in the intersections of politics and human rights, "Perestroika" is an intellectual and emotional odyssey. At its core, the novel confronts the crises facing today's world – from the European upheavals to Russian aggression, Far Right leaders, and global power shifts.

This is more than a book; it's a call to contemplate the delicate balance between political freedom and humanitarian values. Dive into the pages of "Perestroika" and experience a narrative that transcends borders, ideologies, and genres.
