The Kukotski Enigma/Казус Кукоцкого - Lyudmila Ulitskaya/Людмила Улицкая
Would recommend: yes
Reminds me of every other family saga I ever read: Middlesex, Тихий Дон (And Quiet Flows the Don), even "100 years of solitude". But it was quite interesting to read overall. I hated the dream section, though.
The critics complain that it lacks structure or actual storylines, and it's true. But it was fun nevertheless.
