Moscow circles

£5.99

Product description

"Moscow Circles is a samizdat fiction, but with a difference. It is a comic novel and here the comedy is on an extravagant Rabelaisian scale, reminiscent of the great Russian satirists, Gogol and Goncharov.

Erofeev's Russian is haunted by the spectre of drunkenness and his hero, Benny, is a typical Moscow alcoholic/intellectual, or intellectual/alcoholic....
as this bitter but ebullient comedy reaches its crescendo, tragedy emerges in the form of an absolute despair at a world which permits no exit and no escape."

Dust jacket slightly damaged and is scuffed in places, with the general appearance of having been well loved and frequently read. Decent condition.

Part political satire, part comedy and part autobiography, Erofeev's work will leave you breathless and desperate for more of his work. Anyone interested in cold-war era Russia should be delighted to own this work!
