“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,
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.
