Five great books set in MYANMAR (BURMA)
Galina Petrovna’s Three-Legged Dog Story
Perhaps you’re not a member of the Azov House of Culture Elderly Club? Perhaps you missed the talk on the Cabbage Root Fly last week? Galina Petrovna hasn’t missed a single one, since she officially became ‘old’.
But she’d much rather be at home with her three-legged dog. The dog isn’t ‘hers’ exactly – they were both strays, and belong to each other. That’s why she doesn’t wear a collar. And that’s why Mitya The Exterminator took her away. And that’s why old Vasily was arrested and thrown in to jail. And then Galina had to call on Zoya, who had to call on that old fixer, Grigory, up in Moscow. And that’s when they all went clubbing.
Filled to the brim with pickle, misadventure and tears, Galina Petrovna’s Dog Story will leave you smiling at every page.
