Bury me behind the baseboard (Paperback)
Bury Me Behind the Baseboard has been a major bestseller in Russia, staying at the top of the charts for a decade and receiving high acclaim from literary critics and ordinary readers alike. This hilarious book sold over a million copies in Russia and acquires new fans every month. The story of an eight-year-old boy and his grandmother is often described as one of the funniest ever written, on par with Forrest Gump or The Confederacy of Dunces. At the same time, the dramatic tone of some of the passages evokes the writings of Dickens and Dostoyevsky. A winning combination of humor and drama explains the novel's tremendous success in Russia. Translations of Sanaev's Bury Me Behind the Baseboard have been published in Germany, Italy, France, Poland, Israel, China, Taiwan, and other countries.
