Product description

Review

"A tragicomic masterpiece" (Daily Telegraph)

"The deadpan tone works perfectly and it will be a hard-hearted reader who is not touched by Viktor's relationship with his unusual pet" (The Times)

"A black comedy of rare dinstinction and the penguin is an invention of genius" (Spectator)

"A chilling black comedy" (Guardian)

"A striking portrait of post-Soviet isolation... In this bleak moral landscape Kurkov manages to find ample refuge for his dark humour" (New York Times)

Book Description

In today's Ukraine, all that stands between one man and murder by the mafia is a penguin.
