From Booklist:

' "To every time, its own normality." As if to test the limits of his own premise, Ukrainian writer Viktor and his pet penguin, Misha, find themselves in a situation so bizarre as to challenge the very idea of normality. When Viktor is hired to write obituaries of Kiev VIPs to be kept on file, it seems like a great gig. Then the VIPs start to die with a regularity suggesting that Viktor has been signing death warrants, not writing obituaries. From there it's only a short step to Viktor's realization that someone is writing his obituary. As with Daniel Pennac's series about the Mallaussene family (see review on p.2089), Kurkov's novel exists in an all-encompassing vacuum that, like a kind of narrative narcotic, insinuates itself into the reader's pores until, yes, what was once surreal has achieved its own normality. Viktor and Misha, in the grip of circumstances beyond their control, are like us in ways we would never have dreamed possible, and Kurkov, we realize with a bit of a shock, is a strangely entrancing writer.'

An intelligent and funny black comedy. Great to read during summer vacation.

Thank you so much! Sorry for the late journal, I've been a mess lately when it comes to getting things done. I've read this novel and I loved it. I think I'll release it at the convent here in Gothenburg 19-21 April.

This is a phantastic book, I really enjoyed it.

The characters are hilarious, the plot like a slapstick comedy and a film noir at the same time.

I can't wait to read the next book.

Counts for Ukraine.
