About this book
Translated from the Russian, Victor Pelevin's novel finds a cosmonaut's moon mission going awry. Written with an ironic detachment about the situation in Russia.
Trained as a cosmonaut for the Soviet space programme, the hero of this novel, whose name combines the Russian word for special police force and the Ancient Egyptian sun god, finds that his mission to the moon develops unexpectedly, and builds to a bizarre conclusion.
