9780002713047: The Heart Of A Dog

WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY ANDREY KURKOV

A rich, successful Moscow professor befriends a stray dog and attempts a scientific first by transplanting into it the testicles and pituitary gland of a recently deceased man. A distinctly worryingly human animal is now on the loose, and the professor's hitherto respectable life becomes a nightmare beyond endurance. An absurd and superbly comic story, this classic novel can also be read as a fierce parable of the Russian Revolution.

Product Description:

The story of a scroungy mongrel named Sharik who is transformed by a Soviet scientist into a vulgar, Engels-spouting apparachik whose government mission is to purge the city of cats. Other books by Bulgakov include "The Master and Margarita".

Review:

"As high-spirited as it is pointed. Unlike so much satire, it has a splendid sense of fun" ( Irish Times)

"A marvellous writer" (Michael Frayn)

"Bulgakov here assaults the dour utilitarian lives of Soviet citizens with a defiant, boisterous display of nonsense" ( The Times)
