Summary:
Day after day Russian asylum-seekers sit across from the interpreter and Peter--the Swiss officers who guard the gates to paradise--and tell of the atrocities they've suffered, or that they've invented, or heard from someone else.The reader lives inside the nameless interpreter's head, with the narratives combining throughout.
