Regular price €19.00 Sale price €4.00

A rich, successful Moscow professor befriends a stray dog and attempts a scientific first by transplanting into it the testicles and pituitary gland of a recently deceased man. A distinctly worryingly human animal is now on the loose, and the professor's hitherto respectable life becomes a nightmare beyond endurance.

An absurd and superbly comic story, this classic novel can also be read as a fierce parable of the Russian Revolution.

“Bulgakov here assaults the dour utilitarian lives of Soviet citizens with a defiant, boisterous display of nonsense.”  - The Times

“As high-spirited as it is pointed. Unlike so much satire, it has a splendid sense of fun.” -  Irish Times
