2011, A.D. Miller


Snowdrops is a novel by A. D. Miller which was shortlisted for the 2011 Man Booker Prize.

The novel is set in Moscow in the early 2000s and is written in the form of first-person narrative by the protagonist, Nicholas, a British, Moscow-based commercial lawyer. Nicholas gets involved with two Russian girls, Masha, with whom he is romantically involved, and Katya. The liaison sees Nicholas Platt drawn into the underworld of Russia, as a plot unfolds around him, and his new relationship. The novel is written in a confessional style, leading up to the criminal act into which Nicholas has been drawn.

Miller has described Snowdrops as a "moral thriller", because the reader knows that something bad is going to happen, but is not exactly sure what.
