Description for The Rat Killer


'Terekhov's language is packed with forceful imagery and the slang of modern Russian. If we wish to identify precedents for his work we might look to Saltykov-Schedrin from the 19th century for his satire of provincial life, and Platonov in the early Soviet period for his range of imagery and individuality of language. Terekhov, however, is a young and vital writer drawing very much on his own resources and experience, with a distinctive and individual intonation. In the Rat Killer he has produced a racy read which is at the same time an extended metaphor and a satirical novel very much in the Russian tradition'The Moscow TimesFunny, crazy and wonderfully unpredictable - The Times

About the Author

Alexander Terekhov graduated from Moscow University's Department of Journalism and won acclaim as a writer of short stories. His work has since been translated into French, German and English. He spent his childhood in a small industrial town in central Russia, which still preserved "the spirit of the early builders of communism", and his resulting disillusionment underlies both the complex structure and the atmospheric milieu of The Rat Killer
