Once Upon the River Loveoffers further proof that Andreï Makine is one of the major literary talents of our time. Once Upon The River Love. Translated from the French by Geoffrey Strachan. Andrei Makine was born and brought up in Russia but wrote Once Upon the River Love in French, while living in France. Much of the novel is set in eastern Siberia, close to the mighty river Amur – the frontier between Siberia and Manchuria.
In his French text, Makine uses a number of Russian words for basic features of Siberian and Soviet life. I have generally left these as English transliterations of Russian.

О книге "Once Upon The River Love". A novel of love and growing up by Andreï Makine, whose bestselling Dreams of My Russian Summerswas hailed by the Los Angeles Timesas one of the "best autobiographical books of the century. In the immense virgin pine forests of Siberia, where the snows of winter are vast and endless, sits the little village of Svetlaya. In the early years of the century the village had been larger, more prosperous, but time and the pendulum of history had reduced it by the 1970s to no more than a cluster of izbas.
Similarly to other Makine books, the story is embedded in a short narrative set decades later in a far away place. It sets a frame and also allows for reflection of the lives lived. Once Upon the River Love is very rich novel. It is specific in its captivating detail of land and people while at the same time raising pertinent general issues of fiction versus fact, imagination versus action and the role of these in forming young people's minds everywhere.
