‘The Visit’ is a novel by Boris Groys with illustrations by Pavel Peppershtein especially made for this new edition. This story of one sentence told in ten chapters is a verbal exercise proving the power that words have in deconstructing actions, and by extension reality, into segments of meaning. Peppershtein’s drawings are clues towards a better understanding of the elusive figure of Andrey, the main and sole character in a rather uneventful yet intense story that Groys obsessively tells page after page. How close to grasp the essence of Andrey the reader can get is a question difficult to answer. After all, he is a pure product of words.
