Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A prize-winning German writer presents a debut collection of short stories that gives a bizarre, comic twist to life in contemporary St. Petersburg and features such characters as a sublimely indifferent Mafia hitman and a professional dissident. A first collection. Reprint.


Review:

"Schultz's sardonic intelligence and feeling for cultural contrasts give these seemingly disparate tales a pleasing unity and coherence."

Kirkus, 01/01/1998

Book Description: RANDOM HOUSE, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 204 x 133 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. An intriguing, fabulously bizarre debut collection of short stories by prize-winning German writer Ingo Schulze, author of Simple Stories. These thirty-three macabre, often comical short pieces revolve around moments of odd bliss-moments seized by characters who have found ways to conquer the bleakness of everyday life in the chaotic world of post-communist Russia. Peopled by Mafia gunmen, desperate young prostitutes, bewildered foreign businessmen, and even a trio of hungry devils, the stories are by turns tragic and bleakly funny. From a sly retelling of the legend of St. Nicholas featuring a rich American named Nick, to a lavish gourmet feast in which the young female cook ends up as the main dish, these stories are above all playful and even surreal-and many of them are masterful tributes to Russian writers from Gogol to Nabokov.
