Life of Insects: A Novel
Victor Pelevin (a.); Andrew Bromfield (trans.). Russian author Victor Pelevin is one of the most original writers working today. Set in a crumbling resort hotel on the Black Sea, the novel follows the misadventures of the Russian duo Arnold & Arthur & Sam, a visiting American. The twist is they are depicted alternately as human beings & as insects: now they are humans with buggy qualities; now they are insects that walk & talk. As they forage, quarrel, joke, & suck blood in the squalid rooms of the old hotel -- & on the bodies of their hosts -- they invariably get into trouble. In one chapter, a couple of hemp bugs suddenly find themselves being smoked in somebody else’s pipe; in another, two moths flitting around a streetlight discuss the meaning of life. “A savage parable of Russia today & its first cyberpunk novel.”
