This copy has been SIGNED in green ink (author's "lucky" pen) on the title page by Ken Kalfus! With this remarkable debut novel, Ken Kalfus gives us a stunning triumph of invention - an epic story about the death of two Russian visionaries, the life of a radical antihero, and the birth of a new kind of power. Publisher's Weekly [Starred Review] says of it "Told in supple, witty and gritty prose the story exhibits all the vigorous intelligence and vision readers have come to expect from Kalfus." Kirkus Reviews [Starred Review] calls it "An inventive first novel that briskly reimagines 20th century Russian history.A brilliant fusion of satire, science fiction, and political commentary, Gogol is probably tearing his hair out, wishing he'd dreamed this up."
