 An unsuccessful writer and an inveterate alcoholic, Boris Alikhanov is running out of money and has recently divorced from his wife Tatyana, who intends to emigrate to the West with their daughter Masha. The prospect of a summer job as a tourist guide at the Pushkin Hills preserve offers him hope of bringing back some balance into his existence, but during his stay in the rural estate of Mikhaylovskoye, Alikhanov’s life continues to unravel.

Populated with unforgettable characters, such as Alikhanov’s fellow guides Mitrofanov and Pototsky and the KGB officer Belyaev, and presented here for the first time in the English language, Pushkin Hills is arguably Dovlatov’s most personal work and a poignant portrayal of the Russian attitude towards life and art.

"A desperately hilarious, flippantly tragic gem. Read it – and weep. And laugh. But read it." - A.D. Miller

"Dovlatov greeted his success in America with mixed feelings, fearing that in English he would never be appreciated for what he most valued – his language. This first translation, by his daughter Katherine, of a work he particularly cherished, is a powerful argument to the contrary. Its great merit is to recreate the varied speech patterns and colloquial mode of storytelling that Dovlatov worked so hard to render natural in Russian." - TLS

"A black comedy of eyes-wide-open excess … and a fine rumination on being Russian, besides." - Kirkus Reviews

"Amusing and richly disconcerting." - TLS
