“Gorky was touched deeply and soaked my vest with his tears. I started to feel a bit proud. But then, Gorky soaks the vest of every poet with his tears. Nevertheless, I will keep the vest as a souvenir.” — Vladimir Mayakovsky

I'm not quite sure if you like Mayakovsky or just find the quote funny. But, either way, I thought you’d be interested in the website for a new novel Reconstructing Mayakovsky. The site, http://www.reconstructingmayakovsky.com
is fun, inventive and interactive. Like the novel, it combines elements of science fiction, poetry, the detective story and historical fiction to tell the story of Mayakovsky in a radically different way.
If you enjoy it, I hope you’ll share it with your friends or on your blog. Thanks.
