Synopsis

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.

Mikhail Bulgakov (1891-1940) was born and educated in Kiev where he graduated as a doctor in 1916. He rapidly abandoned medicine to write some of the greatest Russian literature of this century. After a lifetime at odds with the stultifying Soviet regime, he died impoverished and blind in 1940, shortly after completing his masterpiece, The Master and Margarita. None of his major fiction was published during his lifetime.

When the brilliant professor Philip Philipovich befriends a stray dog Sharik, he has all ingredients to conduct his most groundbreaking operation. He implants human testicles on Sharik, which results in an appalling and intolerable human being who has a penchant for chasing cats. If you can’t make a man out of a human, how do you expect to make a man out of a dog? Inventive and experimental, this book is both entertaining and politically and socially critical, in a proper Bulgakovian style. - Telka
