Marvelously original. . . . Zlotsky has done for conjoined twins what Gunter Grass did for midgets in The Tin Drum. . . . A weirdly hilarious Russian fairytale composed with the comedic zeal of Gogol and the rhetorical brilliance of Nabokov.--LeeMoreMarvelously original. . . .

Nabokovs Pale Fire mated with Finnegans Wake. --Michael Drout, PhD, language scholarMeet Alex and Alex, as compelling a Russian portrait as the two sides of Raskolnikov. He is--or they are--a dark-caped anti-hero, conjoined twins stalking, counterfeiting, fleeing the iron curtain, delightfully innocent, seeking what everyone seeks: love, hope, and redemption.
