Product Description

Review

"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

Todorov also wrote the screenplay for the 2008 film version of Zift. Variety hailed the movie as "an instant midnight fest fave."

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