Product Description


"Pulp fiction by a historian of ideas."—Literary Weekly (Sofia)

"Tongue flambé."—Kultura

"...stalking its genre with the meticulousness of an assassin, while simultaneously parodying it. A novel that unfolds over a single night, in a single breath—and also reads that way...a black-and-white cinematographic vision of early-1960s Sofia by Night."—Georgi Gospodinov, author of Natural Novel

Dark, gritty & witty Sept. 6 2010
By Dundee Man - Published on
Format: Paperback
Excellent short story which more than lived up to expectation. A great mix of Slavic wit and social narrative
