Publisher's Summary

The Twelve Chairs is one of the most popular and prolific satirical novels written by Odessa-based Ilya Ilf and Yevgeny Petrov.

Set in Soviet Russia, the story starts with a deathbed confession about substantial family treasures hidden from the Bolsheviks in one of the twelve chairs. A team of treasure hunters is quickly formed. Smooth operator Ostap Bender and Kisa, the Pussycat, set off to track down the chairs. They are not alone in their quest. Father Fyodor took advantage of the deathbed confession and has also set off to recover the fortune.

Read in Russian by Veniamin Smehov. This release is part of the Russian Audio Library collection published by Sovereign Classic - www.sovereignclassic.net
