Heart of a Dog


Show Synopsis

WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY ANDREY KURKOV A rich, successful Moscow professor befriends a stray dog and attempts a scientific first by transplanting into it the testicles and pituitary gland of a recently deceased man. A distinctly worryingly human animal is now on the loose, and the professor's hitherto respectable life becomes a nightmare beyond endurance. An absurd and superbly comic story, this classic novel can also be read as a fierce parable of the Russian Revolution.

Let's have a smoke or I'll give you a poke

Polygraph Polygraphovich Sharikov brings a well-needed touch of humour and intelligence to the otherwise crude and brutal Soviet bureaucracy. I'd be glad to share a drink with this evolved dog any time!

Its a medical marvel what a human pituitary gland and new human testes can do for a dog!
