Set in 1990s Kyiv, our protagonist is lonely aspiring writer Viktor, with just his pet penguin for company. Viktor lands a job writing obituaries for a newspaper, only to discover that he has in fact been drawn into a sinister political trap. Deadpan, absurd, gripping and moving, this highly original novel feels especially potent now.
