Description
Something ominous is brewing outside the palace walls, and the three fat men who rule the land with an iron fist are getting fatter as the news gets worse. The tightrope walker Tibul leads revolutionary forces made up of ordinary citizens and the palace guard, embarking on a mission to rescue Prospero the gunsmith from his imprisonment in the tyrants' zoo, while a doctor is entrusted with the task of repairing a doll that belongs to the Three Fat Men's heir. Although Yuri Olesha's masterpiece Envy is a subversive condemnation of the USSR, this highly enjoyable 1928 fantasy novel—originally written for children—is considered an endorsement of the Soviet regime.

"There was something Beethovenian in Yuri Olesha, even in his voice. His eyes discovered many marvelous, impressive things around him, and he wrote about them briefly, precisely, and excellently."—Konstantin Paustovsky
