    The Last Hiccup
    <b><i>A poignant and surreal fable about the nature of good and evil filled with a dazzling cast of characters ... and millions of hiccups</i></b><br/>A darkly funny, tragic, and ultimately heroic novel set in 1930s Russia, <b><i>The Last Hiccup</i></b> is the story of Vladimir, an eight - year - old boy stricken with a case of the hiccups - that lasts over a decade. Put through a series of extraordinary, often bizarre treatments by a famous physician, Sergei Namestikov, Vlad is spirited away from his rural home and doting mother to a hospital in Moscow. But Sergei's chief medical rival, the brilliant Alexander Afiniganov, believes that beneath Vladimir's mirror - less eyes lurks a pure, unbridled evil, and Vlad is removed from polite society. Isolated from everyone and everything - save his hiccups - Vladimir grows up to find inner peace among the hiccupping. On his way back into the world he once knew, through a country now in the midst of war, he encounters many strange people and situations, and worries about what would happen to him should a cure for his now - comforting affliction be found.<br/>
