Into the Thickening Fog

(2017)
A novel by

 
A French theater agrees to stage the latest work by Filippov - the most prestigious and lucrative opportunity of his infamous career - but first he must sever ties with his longtime collaborator and childhood friend. So the internationally acclaimed Russian director makes a reluctant trip back to his hometown to deliver the news. His journey to the Far North, where the temperature remains dangerous all winter, unexpectedly blurs the distinctions between reality and art for this virtuoso, who prides himself on his ability to create shocking scenes and outrageous situations. And after the city's power grid goes off-line, the brutal cold just might get the better of him.

The colder it gets, the more wickedly funny Filippov's boozy exploits, which unravel into an unexpected chain of events - including run-ins with old lovers, meeting a woman who might be his daughter, encounters with the devil, and the unlikely affection of a dog that, like Filippov, is in desperate need of warmth.
