I just finished reading, The Heart of a Dog, by Mikhail Afanasievich Bulgakov published by Vintage Books and translated from the Russian by Michael Glenny. It’s a acerbic satirical comedy but it is also an insight into the Russian Revolution, communism, and how the bourgeoisie ideals collide with the proletarians ideals. As a dog lover I wasn’t too fussed on the experiments, however the stray dog ,Sharik, and his conversion by the proletariat, shows their misguided attempts to produce the ideal of the modern soviet man. Sharik wins his way into your heart . He is loveable, even though he is a disturbing character. He has a phobia about cats. He is disruptive, rude, messy, and a terrible dresser. I am sure you will enjoy reading this book. It’s quirky but has a deeper message. All I wanted for him was to have a safe, happy, comfortable home. sigh!
