Pavel Pepperstein’s second book to be published by Garage is a collection of 16 short stories illustrated by the author.

Like The Age of Theme Parks, published in 2017, The Mystery of Our Time is a captivating mix of detective story, fable, surrealism, fantasy, lyricism, and fairy tale. Rich in cultural allusions and quotes from the classical poetry and rock lyrics, the book follows the extraordinary adventures of a 90-year-old homicide detective, vegetarian, and wise man called Sergei Kursky. Each story is illustrated with full color reproductions of Pavel Pepperstein’s work.
