Read in January, 2012

With such an unsympathetic narrator, I was surprised to like this as much as I did. Mostly due to the skillful writing/translating. Perhaps because it isn't a contemporary addiction memoir (or possibly even a memoir at all) I was much more willing to forgive the juvenile philosophical questions being put forward and found myself admiring how well those questions were explored through the structure of the book and its three sections. It's also interesting as a book standing at the crossroads of the different strands of Russian literature.
