    schema:description ""For Dobychin, early Soviet society was an absurdist wonderland. He was not anti-Soviet but trans-Soviet, practicing realism but looking at reality from jarring angles that expose the neophyte Soviet culture. A typical Dobychin hero participates in character-building sports, witnesses a funeral procession, watches a parade, attends the unveiling of a monument to a fallen Communist - and finally reflects at the end of the day that he almost met a pretty young nurse."--Jacket."@en ;
