A Matter of Death and Life


I’m a bit behind on keeping up to speed with the latest books I’ve read, so here’s a whistlestop tour.
A Matter of Death and Life is the latest Andrey Kurkov novel. This time around our hero decides that life is meaningless and contracts a hit man to kill him. Things quickly get complicated and once more we’re faced with the strange life of a contemporary Ukranian.
This isn’t so much a novel as a novella. As such, I think it’s a bit cheeky that Vintage feel able to charge a £6.99 on it. Recommended nonetheless.
