The Queue

date of publication:  1985

The Queue is a 1983 novel by Russian writer Vladimir Sorokin, first published in English by Readers International in 1988. It has been described as "a bizarrely funny saga of a quintessential Russian institution, the interminably long line." The Library Journal describes Sorokin’s work as being an “avant-garde experiment" with a "flair of nonsense." The Queue does not follow a traditional narrative style. Instead, it is told in dialogue form, so as to make the reader feel like they are part of the line. As described by the Library Journal, the text lacks description, setting, or stage direction. Instead it is filled with nothing but voices: snatches of conversation, rumors, jokes, howls of humor, roll calls, and sexy moans. Source: Wikipedia (en)
