Praise

“Kurkov writes short, sly, page-turners that specialize in what we might call absurdist noir.”
—John Powers, NPR’s Fresh Air

“Anyone who gave themselves the pleasure of reading Death and the Penguin should certainly treat themselves to this sequel. And if you missed it, never mind, read this one anyway: it’s delicious.”
The Spectator

“There is more magic in his realism than in a library of witches and wizards.”
Scotland on Sunday

“Rich, authentic, and entertaining.”
—The New Statesman

Praise for Kurkov’s Death and the Penguin


“A striking portrait of post-Soviet isolation…. In this bleak moral landscape Kurkov manages to find ample refuge for his dark humor.”
The New York Times

“Delicious… when Viktor finally finds Misha it is as if Woody Allen had gone to meet Kurtz.”         
The Spectator

“The deadpan tone works perfectly, and it will be a hard-hearted reader who is not touched by Viktor’s relationship with his unusual pet.”
The Times (London)
