summary Смерть постороннего

review Смерть постороннего 103 Andrey Kurkov ☆ 3 read 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
