's review

it was amazing

Unusual novel indeed. It waited for some half a century to appear in print and, yet, didn't lose its novelty. It belongs to the great Russian tradition of anti-utopias. So, Chevengur is a town where communism... happens. What this means isn't very conforting. At times I thought of the Dvanov and Kopenkin as of some sort of Soviet Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. It's a must read.
