Despite the Falling Snow

AN EXTRACT FROM SHAMIM SHARIF’S COLD WAR ROMANCE, OUT NOW AS A BOOK AND COMING SOON TO CINEMAS

We are so excited about Shamim Sharif’s new book! The author, scriptwriter and director is best known for The World Unseen and I Can’t Think Straight, both novels-turne-films that brought LGBT issues to a mainstream audience. Despite The Falling Snow is a new departure: it tells the story of Alexander, an old man living in Boston, whose past life as a member of the political elite in Cold War Russia caused the death of his wife Katya. Like Sharif’s previous work, the story explores the joys and perils of falling in love in oppressive political climates. True to form, she has already adapted Snow for the screen. The film is released nationwide on 22 April. In the meantime, get your hands on the novel. Here’s an extract to whet your appetite…
