Waterstones Exclusive Edition

A touchstone of Ukrainian literature, Kurkov’s chilling, tragicomic tour de force about a writer of obituaries and his pet penguin moves through post-Soviet moral chaos on the wings of pitch-black comedy, whilst giving a birds-eye view of the visceral tragedy at its heart.
