Hektr Pastrovich, a journalist and poet, travels to the front of a war his country has been fighting for nine years in search of an enigmatic traveler who calls himself the Prince of Ithaka. Along the way, he meets Helena, a beautiful and charismatic woman who becomes a mystery to Hektr as well. Men of Winter is a revisionist work drawing from Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, set in early twentieth-century Russia. This edition is revised and expanded from the version of the novel that originally came out in 2010, released by a different publisher.
