St Petersburg in the time of the Czar. Poprishchin is a kind of human photocopier. Towering above him is the most insane and terrifying hierarchy in human history. Down the bottom with him are millions of other clerks. But Poprishchin’s a little bit different. Poprishchin’s got love and he’s on his way to the very top. In an age of ridiculous ambition and ubiquitous work, Gogol’s comic tale is a loser’s Hamlet. It burrows into our wildest fantasies and finds wonderful play in the gap between who we are and who we think we are.
