From one of the most exciting voices in modern Russian literature, Alisa Ganieva, comes Bride and Groom, the tumultuous love story of two young city-dwellers who meet when they return home to their families in rural Dagestan. When traditional family expectations and increasing religious and cultural tension threaten to shatter their bond, Marat and Patya struggle to overcome obstacles determined to keep them apart, while fate seems destined to keep them together–until the very end.

Longlisted for the Read Russia 2020 Prize

Runner-up for 2015 Russian Booker Prize

A bold and startling novel. –Viv Groskop, The Guardian

The book is wonderfully transportive, and while full of beautifully rendered details of North Caucasian landscapes and traditional familial connection, it's set against the unmistakable backdrop of the post-Soviet world...Though set in the traditional confines of a largely Muslim North Caucasus, this divide is a microcosm for a very real wedge between two distinct generations in Russia today, a wedge that's become a powerful force in struggles from music consumption and social media, to what the future of Russian politics will look like. –Nadia Beard The Calvert Journal

Ganieva's writing has a kind of magic." –Lauren Smart, Dallas Observer

Much as they try, [the characters'] individual stories are mere fodder for the dysfunctional social order built on systemic corruption and terror. –Olga Zilberbourg, World Literature Today
