Gogol's Dead Good

There's a brand new writer on the scene who I expect great things from - Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol.

If you haven't read his hot new novel, Dead Souls, I suggest you check out the free download here. Surely this is destined to be one of the masterworks of Russian literature and one of the great works of satire. No doubt about it - Gogol is my 'hot tip' for 2012.

Admittedly, Gogol died in 1852 and Dead Souls was first published ten years earlier than that, but I've only just read it so it's new to me.
