Description

Locked in a cabin on a ship bound for Leningrad, Lev Termen types a letter to Clara, his 'one true love,' remembering his early years as a brilliant young scientist. Inventor of the ethereal, musical theremin, Termen performed in the gilded concert halls of Russia and Europe to rapturous applause. The toast of the Soviet Union, he was sent to New York with a plan to infiltrate capitalism itself - to win its heart and capture its secrets. But instead, Manhattan infiltrates Termen and in the city of dreams he rubs shoulders with Gershwin and Rachmaninoff, the Rockefellers and the Astors, Charlie Chaplin and Glenn Miller and dances night after night with the beautiful young violinist Clara Rockmore. But when his spy games fall apart and he is forced to return home, he finds the Motherland not quite as he left it…

Professional reviews

"Us Conductors is a hauntingly beautiful novel of longing and electricity that tells the true story of Russian inventor and spy Lev Thermen. ‘Michaels has a natural gift for bringing us to a time and place which allows the suspension of belief and lets you walk every step of the way with him.’ THE GLODE AND MAIL ‘Told with grace and confidence, and in a finely wrought voice, Us Conductors kept surprising me to the end.’ EOWYN IVEY, author of The Snow Child."
