"These 13 short stories, all published in the USSR during the last four years, have more in common with the magic realism of Latin America than the Soviet Socialist variety. They are set in and about Leningrad and Moscow, but Tolstaya's protagonists--children, romantics, fantasists, losers, fools--inhabit the subjective world of dreams and fears. The imagery is extravagant and the point of view shifting and elusive, but somehow Tolstaya manages to invest even her most grotesque characters and their most trivial aspirations with dignity and a claim to our sympathy. This talented writer's rainbow prose will be a tonic to readers ready for a change from the gray tonality of American "minimalist" fiction."
