Noise of Time by Julian Barnes

1937 in Leningrad; a man is standing with his suitcase by the elevator in the middle of the night, waiting to be taken away. Barnes’ novel is a fictionalized account of the tragic life of soviet composer Dmitri Shostakovich under Stalin. It’s about art under an oppressive system, about power and human compromise. Intriguing and well-written as always.
