• Spellbindingly readable

    John Bayley, Times Literary Supplement
  • This gripping novel of the folly of idealism set in the post-Napoleonic Russian empire, has helped Jaan Kross to the stature of world-class novelist... An outdated, almost forgotten moral beauty struggles with the force of modern, well-meaning compromise

    The Times
  • The Czar's Madman is no bloodless allegory but a rich slice of reconstructed history... Kross creates an abundant human landscape with nothing schematic about it

  • This author's scope and depth make him a world writer, and his work is translated into every major language

    Doris Lessing, Independent
