We are going to Uncle Vanya's.
This books is considered Doy's purgatory in between crime and pun's hell and Brother K's salvation. He predicts and foreshadows Russia's revolution. It is a response to a current, unjust, political murder. He satirizes and takes a literary crap on Turgenev. Throughout the novel Doy is trying to spit in the face of nilhism. Virginia Woolf said reading Doy is like being consumed in a kind of whirling, seething pool. Hemingway said, concerning Doy, "How can someone write so badly but make the reader feel so deeply?" Henry James thought Doy's writing was garbage. Kafka considered Doy one of his closest, most intimate friends. Almost every great writer pays some kind of homage to Doy. Enjoy the book.
