A. Hu-li, beautiful and curiously foxlike, has the appearance of a luscious fourteen-year-old girl, the mind of a sly Buddhist monk, and an endearing habit of name-dropping all the famous people she's met over the past two thousand years. She works as a classy prostitute in Moscow's premier hotels, until one client goes inexplicably and fatally berserk at the sight of her and she has to leave in a hurry. Forced to advertise on the Internet, she comes to the attention of an intelligence officer who also happens to be a werewolf. Victor Pelevin's new work of fiction is both a supernatural love story and an outrageously funny satirical portrait of modern Russia. With all his characteristic humor and metaphysical ambition, Pelevin introduces us to an unforgettable cast of perverts, former KGB agents, oil tycoons, and amorous werewolves.

display_description In Pelevin's sharpest, most accessible, and most engrossing novel to date, A. Huli, a fifteen-year-old contemporary Moscow prostitute, is in truth a two-thousand-year-old werefox. After the death of a client, she is forced to work via ads placed on the internet. Eventually, she comes to the attention of Alexander, a Russian intelligence officer who, unbeknownst to her, is a werewolf. They fall in love and, many plot twists later, we discover that The Sacred Book of the Werewolf is A. Huli's memoir.
