Product Description

Praised by The New York Times Book Review as “an Abkhazian Mark Twain,” Fazil Iskander was one of the most acclaimed writers in the Soviet Union—and also one of the funniest. In Rabbits and Boa Constrictors, Iskander the story of a struggle between . . . well, rabbits and boa constrictors, which is really a struggle between the manipulators and the manipulated as they try to function in a failed utopia. (Sound familiar?)


Praise for Fazil Iskander:

“Iskander’s flights of fancy and seemingly inexhaustible ability to weave fantastic tales have led to frequent comparisons between his work and that of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Iskander takes a worthy place in the tradition of Russian satirists, the Gogol of Dead Souls, the Nabokov of Lolita.” —Los Angeles Times



Fazil Iskander was born in 1929, in Sukhumi, in the Soviet Union. He is the author of many stories, novels, and novellas, including The Goatibex Constellation and especially Sandro of Chegem. In 2010 he was awarded the Russian Order of Merit for the Fatherland. He lives in Moscow.
