Master of the absurd, Russian literary great Mikhail Bulgakov's dystopian fiction is steeped in the real thing. The Fatal Eggs is a cautionary tale of science and government gone wrong.
Professor Persikov stumbles across a miracle hidden in plain sight. When his astounding growth technology is suborned by the Soviet government to help cope with a massive chicken shortage, it would be impossible for anything to go right. Hilarity ensues.
I am a huge fan of Mikhail Bulgakov, but it is all in finding a good translation. Michael Karpelson does a pretty good job, and is very clear without being super dry.
This $4 e-book is well worth it.
Surrealism direct from the heart of the Cold War's dystopia itself!
