Set in the seamy world of the Russian sex slave trade, The Age of Terror is the harrowing story of Joe, a disillusioned young American expatriate and lapsed Catholic who searches for life's meaning in the Soviet Union on the eve of its disintegration.

Plante plays brilliantly with our assumptions of both the United States and Russia, and ultimately proclaims a universal theme of sacredness and redemption.

Praise for The Age of Terror

"At heart intellectual, literary and theological.... Plante is serious, intelligent and convincing, and he is always worth reading." --Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post

"...reads like an allegory, a fairy tale, and a true story, all in one--an eerie little powerhouse of a novel. I think that this book may help bring David Plante the serious attention he deserves as a novelist." --Philip Roth

"A powerful, courageous, curiously invigorating work, reffirming our need to look at the last, worst things, and then to begin again, beyond them." --Margaret Drabble

"David Plante has established himself as one of the most necessary and resonant novelists of his generation." -Peter Straub

"This book will chill your soul." -Richard Fuller, The Philadelphia Enquirer
