Description:

1st Printing. 185 pages. Published in 2013. Retrospective collection of short stories. One of the greatest short story collections of our time. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a softcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Ludmilla Petrushevskaya's short stories. "By turns sly and sweet, burlesque and heartbreaking, these realist fables of women looking for love are the stories that Ludmilla Petrushevskaya, who has been compared to Chekhov, Tolstoy, Beckett, Poe, Angela Carter, and even Stephen King, is best-known for in Russia. Here are attempts at human connection, both depraved and sublime, by people across the life span: One-night stands in communal apartments, poignantly awkward couplings, office trysts, schoolgirl crushes, elopements, tentative courtships, rampant infidelity, shot through with lurid violence, romantic illusion, and surprising tenderness. Blends macabre spectacle with transformative moments of grace. Shows just why she is Russia's preeminent contemporary fiction writer" (Publisher's blurb). "A revelation. It is like reading Tolstoy's fables with all of the Master's directness and brutal authority" (The New Yorker Magazine). An absolute "must-have" title for Ludmilla Petrushevskaya collectors. This title is a great book. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the First American Edition/First Printing (complete number line beginning in 1 on the Copyright Page) available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: All other copies available online are subsequent printings. A rare copy thus. One of the greatest living writers. A fine copy.
