Existence,freedom and self-respect

Underground by Vladimir Makanin, one of the biggest names in contemporary Russian literature, has been brought out by Everest Yayınları.

Treating the themes of existence, freedom and self-respect in a witty style, the book is famous for its adroit references to the classical works of Russian literature that preceded it. Petrovich, who spends his days as a guard in an apartment building on the edge of the city, is rejected one by one by all the publishers to whom he submits his work. A good read for those who wonder how he finds happiness while seeking his ‘ego’ in the interminable corridors.
