“A sardonically amusing romp …” —John Powers, NPR’s Fresh Air

“Full of touches of grim insight and tactful surrealism, with just enough of the absurd to suggest a cross between John le Carré’s Smiley and Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita.”
Scotland on Sunday

“Kurkov flips from mock-tragedy to comedy and back again, planting the ominous and the absurd neatly among deadpan descriptions of a daily life in denial.”
The Times
