Who would think a novel about the siege of Leningrad and the various horrors of war could be so damn funny? Still not sure about the framing device, but overall I really liked this one.
Fun facts about the author, David Benioff:
1. He is the co-creator and co-writer of the Game of Thrones TV series (which I would have never guessed from this novel).
2. He is married to actress Amanda Peet.
