Read ¸ Смерть постороннего È PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Summary ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ Andrey Kurkov Summary Смерть постороннего ?nd „subiecţii“ cad rãpuşi dupã publicarea lor Premeditare Complot mafiot Intrigi politice Singura scãpare din cursa cinicã ce pare sã i fi fost întinsã scriitoraşului nostru benign iubitor doar de muze şi pinguini pare sã fie Antarctida Dar cine va reuşi sã se salveze El sau Mişa Cãci în avionul spre Polul Sud nu existã decât un singur loc disponib. I read Death and the Penguin by Andrey Kurkov for my book group and came to it knowing nothing about it I really enjoyed the story of Viktor Zolotaryov a frustrated writer whose short stories are too short and uneventful to be published When a newspaper editor unexpectedly offers Viktor a job as an obituarist with reasonable pay and working from home he agrees His original style delights his editor Initially he has to select powerful figures from the Ukrainian elite and prepare their obituaries ready for their death and as the volume of obituaries increases Viktor realises that his obituaries seem to foreshadow the subject s death Death and the Penguin is a blackly comic critiue of post Soviet corruption in Ukraine and the inevitable bleakness is part of the novel s appeal Viktor s pet penguin Misha is a marvellous creation who symbolises the confusion and loss of community that characterises post Soviet Ukraine Just as Misha the penguin is cut off from his natural collective and co opeative environment so Viktor is struggling to survive in a city that is confusing and unwelcoming to its human populationWhilst this may all sound a tad depressing be reassured that it s actually very readable amusing and uietly rails against the world it describes The plot is original and surprising making the book something of a page turner and it includes lots of interesting details about Ukrainian habits and culture not least how alcohol seems to accompany every social interaction no matter what time of the day or night In short it s a charming gripping original funny and provocative absurdist novel 45

Ukrainian satire isn t something I d typically read but it s good to broaden one s horizons I think that this book must resonate with those who lived in the post Soviet world although the loneliness relieved only by a buddy named Sergey and a large depressed penguin named Misha was really well written The humor was witty and dark the story uirky and you had to enjoy architecture called Stalin baroue Our hero is a depressive sort who cannot get published for his short stories but instead is hired to write pre obituaries for various hoi polloi just in case said notables should suddenly drop dead and the editor be left scrambling for a high uality write up of the deceased s contributions to the world Our guy is charged with pondering who might reuire a flowery written send off but also might be at risk for departing for the hereafter Let s see who is most likely to die and therefor get my work published terribly disliked politicians elderly artists mob bossesWhen he is writing these non obituary obituaries he tends to puff up the life of the predeceased Mobsters are given a little style and grace maybe some kindnesses nobody knew about fiction but hey he is a writer These write ups end up being really good and wouldn t you know it The people he has chosen to memorialize suddenly all start ending up deadToss in a new friend a lonely penguin adopted from the zoo during their financial crisis a kid a gal and uite a few funerals and you get humor But dark nearly depressive humor It s Ukrainian satireSomeone drew my attention to this review today and seeing that there is actually a seuel I decided to update this and to also get my hands on the new penguin tale Bad pun Sad and almost funny That means Im ready So glad I read it
