'Told in an unsparing style that contrasts physical reality with the glossy artificiality of new Riga, it's a brilliant piece of writing (and translation). Garros-Evdokimov achieve this particular mixture of disgust and lucid observation of bodily functions - in this case, a corpse - with the slightly ironic, distanced narrator that we associate more with American fiction or film (Tarantino, or even Updike) than with Russian prose tradition', Charlotte Hobson, TelegraphReseña del editor:
Twenty-six-year-old Vadim hates his job in the PR department of Latvia's biggest bank. He spends his time playing his favourite shoot-em-up computer game,'Headcrusher', and composing insulting emails about his bosses. When his manager catches him writing one such email, Vadim is so overcome with rage that he kills him. Then he kills the bank's security guard too, because he has seen him disposing of the body. Bumping people off comes to seem as easy as playing a computer game (or moving money between bank accounts) and Vadim embarks on a killing spree, putting paid to anyone who annoys him. But, as he becomes embroiled in the murky activities of the corrupt bank, which is laundering money for Mafia criminals, he starts to lose touch with reality. Where does truth end and fantasy begin - and is life just one big computer game? This high octane debut novel has the energy of a Tarantino film, the game-playing of The Matrix and the philosophical quirkiness of Fight Club. Nothing quite like it has come out of Russia before. It has been a major bestseller there and has been picked up by publishers around the world.
