    Book details

Sisters is a contemporary reworking of Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard. Its author, John Fraser, has been hailed as ‘the most original novelist of our time’ by the distinguished poet and Whitbread Award winner, John Fuller. It can be read as a kind of vega.

Masha, a young woman with a rich Middle Eastern culture, is forced by war to leave her country, her sisters, and even change her name. Abandoning her training as a surgeon, she becomes involved in superconductors and intrigued by the philosophical aspects of her work – energy, time and distance – she seeks new 'sisters' and tries to assert herself in the unfamiliar cultures and human projects she encounters.

Masha is taken up by Irene, who is occupied in a big house with a laboratory equipped for research in space travel. In an echo of the Chekhovian theme which runs through the plot, the train which promises escape in the Cherry Orchard finds an ironic resonance in the expedient of space travel and re-location.
