Reviews

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 *
