Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for 33 MOMENTS OF HAPPINESS by Ingo Schulze.

"It is an act of bravura for an outsider to attempt a literary portrait of a foreign city, but Schulze succeeds magnificently here. Usually beginning with a detailed and convincing depiction of life in the postcommunist era, Schulze sometimes stays within the bounds of realism, but more frequently uses the background as a platform to launch a flight of fantasy, sometimes charming, sometimes scurrilous, and sometimes scandalous but always thought-provoking. These stories, which do indeed revolve around moments of happiness, culminate in generalizations about the Russian character that would be banal if stated plainly and simply, but they acquire an odd authenticity when the reader glimpses them lurking behind the characters an their situations. While some of these stories would probably perplex or even irritate native Saint Petersburgers, they are probably as close to the soul of this fabled city as an outsider's imagination ever gets. Highly recommended."
