When a respected surgeon decides to transplant human body parts into a stray dog, he creates a monster - drunken, profligate, aggressive and selfish. It seems the worst aspects of the donor have been transplanted as well. As his previously well-regulated home descends into riotous chaos, the doctor realises he will have to try to reverse the operation; but the dog isn't so keen....

Wild, uproarious and deliriously comic, Bulgakov's short novel is at once a comment on the problems of 1920s Russia and a lasting satire on human nature.

    " A great Bulgakov book - a surreal world, a parody of the totalitarianism of the 1920s... "

    " Heart of a Dog is a satirical critique of post-revolution society in Russia, as Stalinism is slowly strangling the life out of Moscow. Written in 1925 and banned in Russia, it wasn't published until 1987. A very clever tale, I definitely recommend it. Bulgakov is a literary genius. I appreciate his works so incredibly much. "
