'Dream. After Dream' is a semi-documentary novella by the Moscow-born and Dublin-based poet and novelist Anatoly Kudryavitsky. An Irishman from Mayo takes an interest in Communist ideas and in 1921 moves to Russia. In 1940, the year the USSR signs the treaty with Nazi Germany, all the Irishmen living in Russia are arrested, imprisoned and soon die in the GULAG, except for the hero of the novella who survives and makes an attempt to return to Ireland. Also included in the book are two of the author's shorter novellas, a short story and a selection of his acclaimed prose poems.
