Technically, 2004 was the fifth year of the Second Chechen War, but in truth, Chechnya had never recovered from the first war, which had begun 1994. Eight-year-old Haava hadn't even been born when this protracted apocalypse began, and now, with her father taken prisoner, she had become yet another victim. Anthony Marra's debut novel A Constellation of Vital Phenomena tracks her story and that of her missing sister, but it also projects the fates of numerous other villagers caught in events that they cannot control or even avoid. A gripping novel by a talent to watch.
