The Golden Calf

My interest in this comic jewel was fuelled by Lizok's Bookshelf and thus I was pleased to find a copy at Powell's last month in Chicago. The daring adventures of Ostap Bender and his cohorts all across the Soviet Union in the aftermath of the NEP proved to be hilarious, albeit cloaked in irony given the climate of the late 1930s.
