Example text

Lev Davidovich would never know if the twelve days during which they remained stranded in that spot in the middle of nowhere ­were due to the delays in the diplomatic consultations or if it was only because of the most devastating snowstorm he’d ever seen, capable of lowering the thermometers to forty degrees below zero. Covered with all of the coats, hats, and blankets at their disposal, they received Seriozha and Anya, who traveled without the children, who ­were still too little to be exposed to those temperatures.

But soon Caridad would feel that those places had an excess of that which she ­wasn’t seeking (men willing to inebriate her to throw her in bed) and something, still undefined, was lacking, something capable of motivating her and reconciling her with her own soul. Then that fine woman, surrounded by luxury and comfort from birth, educated by nuns, an expert rider of Arabian h ­ orses, married to that own­er of factories who was, by his very nature, removed from the feelings of men who worked for their wealth, removed her jewels and attractive clothing and descended in search of the shadiest corners of the city.

He felt that, at that exact moment, his exile was beginning—­true, complete, without any support. Aside from his family and a very few friends who had reiterated their solidarity, he was a man who was overwhelmingly alone. His only useful allies for a battle like the one he had to initiate (how? ) ­were still confined in work camps or had already given in, but all of them remained within the borders of the Soviet ­Union, and his relationship with them was snuffed out by distance, repression, and fear.
