Angels, imaginary friends, near-saints, shades and ber-ogres fall to Earth among ordinary Russians and routinely succeed in whetting the imagination in this sparkling collection from Tolstoy's great-grandniece, a longtime New Yorker fiction contributor. In "The Circle," Vassily Mikailovich (Tolstaya wryly leaves him without a surname) turns 60 and finds little behind or ahead of him, despite meeting the ghost of former lover Isolde.

A flawless mixture of the absurd and the everyday all written with staggeringly beautiful prose.

The short stories in this collection are written exceptionally. I still go back and reread them on occasion.
