Staff Reviews

This book, banned in USSR for a long time, show the late Soviet life through an eye of a delusional alcoholic. It is funny and sad at the same time and is considered one of the most important Soviet novels.

-- Daniel

— From Danya P. Staff Picks


In this classic of Russian humor and social commentary, a fired cable fitter goes on a binge and hopes a train to Petushki (where his "most beloved of trollops" awaits). On the way he bestows upon angels, fellow passengers, and the world at large a magnificent monologue on alcohol, politics, society, alcohol, philosophy, the pains of love, and, of course, alcohol.
