This was a book I picked up in Five Leaves just because it looked interesting and I chose it for a group discussion in 21st Century Literature which starts later this month This was my first experience of reading Tolstaya and the collection is a very enjoyable introduction to the diversity of her writing Many of these stories appear to have autobiographical elements but others are clearly fictional They reflect her experiences of living and working in Russia both before and after the fall of the Soviet regime and America and also her travels elsewhere in Europe The writing is always lively perceptive and engagingI am also using this review for my brief notes on the individual stories to use as an aide memoir for the discussion2020 On the effect of corrective eye surgery and how the recuperation period of temporary blindness affected the author s perceptionsAspic On traditional Russian methods of preparing meats in aspic jellySmoke and Shadows A long and rather unsettling fable in which the narrator tells of a relationship she had as a student in America with a married professor which ends with her murdering the wife and the professor view spoilerthen finally admitting that the whole story was a fantasy concocted while sitting alone in a student cafeteria hide spoiler Winning The Player realities and yearnings to transcend them lead to miraculous other worlds in this dazzling collection of stories A woman's deceased father appears in her dreams with clues about the afterlife; a Russian professor in a small American town constructs elaborate fantasies during her cigarette break; a man.

review ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB Õ Tatyana Tolstaya Лёгкие миры Повести рассказы эссе review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Tatyana Tolstaya Õ 3 free read Falls in love with a marble statue as his marriage falls apart; a child glimpses heaven through a stained glass window With the emotional insight of Chekhov the surreal satire of Gogol and a uniue blend of humor and poetry all her own Tolstaya transmutes the uotidian into aetherial alternatives These tales about politics identity love and loss cut to the core of the Russian psyche even as they lay bare human universals Tolstaya's characters seekers all are. National Book Award Longlist for Translated Literature 2018 I enjoyed Tolstaya s caustic sense of humor that is often on display in this short story collection I also loved her Russianness whether it is making aspic for New Year s Eve Aspic despite the fact that no one likes it just because it is tradition or recounting her summers at her family s dacha The Invisible Maiden Tolstaya s imagination often takes flight creating whole cloth scenarios from just observing a young man across the student cafeteria Smoke and Shadows This is not a cheerful story either I just want to sit in a dark room full of vile and bitter people so I can turn my heart into ice Because life is but smoke and shadows Her stories of the travails of home ownership are uite poignant In Aetherial Worlds she has purchased a fixer upper in New Jersey that she purchases because of one magical room that overlooks the yard but lacks a patio And so this absurd wonderful addition this airy translucent box promising entry into an aetherial world was stuck in our terrestrial one weighty and stifling In Doors and Demons Tolstaya experiences the frustrations that can happen while traveling The Metro train breaks down in Paris and she needs to exit the station But the ticket won t let herself AND her luggage through as it thinks she is two people After that is resolved she has a bad taxi experience followed by her hotel room being double booked When your demon is in charge do not try to think consciously Drift wait and obey The author is fascinated by bizarre personalities like Saparmurat Turkmenbashi who became the leader of Turkmenistan after the Soviet Union split up Among other absurdities he declared infectious diseases to be illegal and forbid them to be even mentioned Official Nationality And then there is the unusual story of Emanuel Swedenborg who was Karl XII s advisor in the mid 1700s He declared that he had seen the Day of Judgment and the Second Coming Was he ridiculed for such pronouncements No he was adored by the nobility and the Swedish king Swedenborg I had not heard of either of these men and googled them to make sure that they really existed YupTolstaya s stories are sure to entertain Recommend
