9780099513490: The Good Angel of Death

The Good Angel of Death is a classic, first-rate Kurkov yarn which is sure to delight old and new fans alike.
     When Kolya moves into a new flat in Kiev, he discovers an annotated manuscript hidden inside a copy of War and Peace and decides to track down its author, even if it means digging up the grave of a Ukranian nationalist who died in mysterious circumstances.
     An exhumation reveals that an item of great national importance is buried near a fort in Kazakstan so when, during his night shift as a security guard, Kolya is threatened with mysterious phone calls, he sets off on what turns out to be a very bizarre journey. Along the way he meets a host of unlikely characters including Bedouins, ex-KGB officers and a spirit-like companion in the form of a chameleon.
     From the author of cult bestseller, Death and the Penguin.

About the Author:

ANDREY KURKOV was born in St Petersburg in 1961. Having graduated from the Kiev Foreign Languages Institute, he worked for some time as a journalist, did his military service as a prison warder in Odessa, then became a film cameraman, writer of screenplays and author of critically acclaimed and popular novels, including the cult bestseller Death and the Penguin.

Review:

"Packs a lot of plot into this deadpan satire... Strange and tantalising" Metro "Flits between dark and light exploring the twilight zone between fantasy and reality" -- John Thornhill Financial Times "Kurkov is hugely talented, truly very funny" Time Out "Kurkov's style is spare and effective, drawing us with deceptive ease into a dense, complex world full of wonderful characters" -- Michael Palin "A rather beautiful dreamlike journey" -- Victoria Moore Daily Mail
