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

Excellent short story which more than lived up to expectation. A great mix of Slavic wit and social narrative
