“Pelevin is one of the funniest novelists writing today” New Statesman
“One of the greatest pleasures of Pelevin’s writing is the perfectly pitched irony of his narrative voice, which pokes fun at his characters but never abandons sympathy for them…” Guardian
Victor Pelevin has created a mesmerising world where the surreal and the hyperreal collide. The Helmet of Horror is structured according to the internet exchanges of the twenty first century, radically reinventing the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur for an age where information is abundant but knowledge ultimately unattainable.
