Vera Spiller, a longtime lover of classic Russian literature, has completed her debut novel “Pride and Punishment”: an impassioned look at the revolutionary deeds of the famous men and women in Russian literary history, the violent conspiracies they hatched, and their successes and failures in the process of creating what they believed would be an improved Russia.

“They were rich and powerful men in Russia who seemed to have everything, but it wasn’t enough for them,” Vera Spiller says of the men who appear in her work. “They conspired to replace the autocratic regime of Czar Alexander I by the codes of laws that resembled British or even American Constitution.”

Published by Page Publishing, Vera Spiller’s historic tale features familiar Russian authors including Pushkin, Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, and more. As their actions incite riots and rebellions within Czarist Imperial Guards and encourage societal unrest, these great men are eventually cut down to size and must face the consequences of their actions.

“The uprising was ruthlessly suppressed. Some of them paid the ultimate price, while others were
exiled in Siberia. Their friends remained loyal through good and bad times. Their beautiful women followed them to the earth’s end,” Vera Spiller continued.

Readers who wish to share in these moments of upheaval in Russian history can purchase “Pride and Punishment” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
