The Heart Of A Dog Summary

The Heart Of A Dog by Mikhail Bulgakov

WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY ANDREY KURKOV

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.

The Heart Of A Dog Reviews

As high-spirited as it is pointed. Unlike so much satire, it has a splendid sense of fun * Irish Times *
A marvellous writer -- Michael Frayn
Bulgakov here assaults the dour utilitarian lives of Soviet citizens with a defiant, boisterous display of nonsense * The Times *

About Mikhail Bulgakov

Mikhail Bulgakov (1891-1940) was born and educated in Kiev where he graduated as a doctor in 1916. He rapidly abandoned medicine to write some of the greatest Russian literature of this century. After a lifetime at odds with the stultifying Soviet regime, he died impoverished and blind in 1940, shortly after completing his masterpiece, The Master and Margarita. None of his major fiction was published during his lifetime.
