remember the jackalope
love that book. surprised i never mentioned it on this forum. you are reading the pevear & volokhonsky translation, i hope. don't know russian but i admire their lack of, say, concision, or even facility, in favor of capturing the author's voice.Currently reading Master & Margarita by Bulgakov, which is extraordinary, though very oddly translated. surprised his name came up blank on the dissensus search engine.
