9780099461692: Penguin Lost

Viktor - last seen in Death and the Penguin fleeing Mafia vengeance on an Antarctica-bound flight booked for Penguin Misha - seizes a heaven-sent opportunity to return to Kiev with a new identity. Clear now as to the enormity of abandoning Misha, then convalescent from a heart-transplant, Viktor determines to make amends. Viktor falls in with a Mafia boss who engages him to help in his election campaign, then introduces him to men who might further his search for Misha, said to be in a private zoo in Chechnya.

What ensues is for Viktor both a quest and an odyssey of atonement, and, for the reader, an experience as rich, topical and illuminating as Death and the Penguin.

Product Description:

Title: Penguin Lost <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: Andrey Kurkov <>Publisher: VINTAGE

Review:

"Delicious – when Viktor finally finds Misha it is as if Woody Allen had gone to meet Kurtz" ( Spectator)

"There is more magic in his realism than in a library of witches and wizards" ( Scotland on Sunday)

"Rich, authentic and entertaining" ( New Statesman)

"This grotesque post-Soviet world is tinged with Dostoevskian absurdity" ( Independent)

" Death and the Penguin was praised for its brutal humour, tender humanity and all-out guts. Penguin Lost is a sequel equally superlative and twice as readable" ( Ink)
