Wow, thats like my favorite book. In my opinion, the best modernist book ever written. If you like it, pick up Kotik Lateav and his Dramatic Symphony, and then read A Silver Dove. All have been translated into english. The rest of his works werent. Truly I am in awe of how Petersburg was written. So perfectly planned and executed, yet alive and full of humor. The symbolism behind ever single sentence, is just amazing. And his use of descriptions, math and geometry--I could go on. I am really interested in how you like it.
