A Dog's Heart by Mikhail Bulgakov

“What makes a man? A Russian scientist’s experiment goes wrong and he is left with a half-man, half-dog person who is quite a handful. This book was dangerous to the Soviet state when it was written in 1925 and wasn’t published until much later. It is a very entertaining story. The dog-man creation is a parody of the whole Soviet ““new man”” that is supposed to emerge under the Soviet system. This book also had an excellent introduction, and Extra Material section at the back where I learned more about Bulgakov and his life. His story is very interesting and sad.
