In a recent email conversation, a colleague and I talked about Viktor Pelevin not being my cup of tea, coffee, or cocoa… that was before
I read Операция «Burning Bush» (Operation
“Burning Bush”), the first piece in Pelevin’s Ананасная вода для
прекрасной дамы (Pineapple Water for the Fair Lady). Burning Bush, like Omon Ra before it (previous
post), didn’t turn me into a Pelevin fanatic, but the novella does—continuing
with the drink theme—serve up some interesting glasses of kvass.
