Night Roads


Rights : 'Night Roads', which first appeared in 1941, is a major work of Russian exile literature. Viviane Hamy administers the rights for it worldwide, with the exception of Poland.

To escape the Communist revolution, Gazdanov, as well as thousands of ‘white’ Russians in 1920, fled to Paris. At the wheel of his taxi, every night he follows the labyrinth of streets in the capital and its suburbs, as well as in his memory. This nocturnal drive reveals the shadows and lights of souls; and Gazdanov becomes the fascinated observer of his compatriots, exiled Russians and the dregs of Paris.
