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.

A marvellous writer -- Michael Frayn
Bulgakov here assaults the dour utilitarian lives of Soviet citizens with a defiant, boisterous display of nonsense * The Times *
