Comments & Further Information

First UK edition hardback in good condition for its age.  Heavy age tanning to pages making them rather brown but still eminently readable.  The dust jacket is complete and still shows the price.

Author’s first novel.   A satire: it is absurd, good-humoured and very funny.

SYNOPSIS:  “Once again strange things are happening in Moscow. Professor Boris Proplavsky has been working undisturbed at the Tikvin Biomedical Research Centre for years. The institute has been overlooked, there is no correspondence incoming or outgoing, no quotas to fulfil and, for most of the staff, no work to be done. Suddenly Proplavsky attracts the attention of the KGB. He has made discoveries that the KGB think will change the course of world history.”
