Una ragazza della periferia russa scrive Dammi! Song for Lovers, e diventa famosa in pochi mesi. I critici si dividono: per alcuni è una nipotina di Hemingway e Salinger, per altri esprime solo il «degrado giovanile». Protagonisti sono gli «under 21» della immensa Russia, sfuggiti a qualsiasi tentativo di esplorazione, cosí diversi e al tempo stesso cosí simili ai loro coe ...more

At first I thought this was a collection of disparate short stories. Two thirds of the way through the book I realized all the stories are related, and by the end of the book I immediately wanted to start over and re-read them all again so I could map out the connections. I'm waiting to do this until I can read it all in one sitting. I would definitely read anything by this author.

Gelezen in de Nederlandse vertaling van Madeleine Mes.

Korte en langere verhalen over tieners en jongeren die teveel chatten, drinken, roken en vrijen in het huidige Rusland.

Literair niet veel waard, maar wel vaak voorzien van een sterk neergezette sfeer van verveling en uitzichtloosheid, met het surrealistische verhaal 'Vasja' over groene mannetjes als uitschieter.

although a little overrated, i still like the stories. she made me realized that as bad and as boring teenaghood is, it's still much better than being old. teenagers get away with everything. also, ppl say it reveals how lives are like for russian teenagers, which to me seems no different than north american teenagers.
Noiosetto... storie di ragazzi svogliati, senza particolari problemi, che si fanno le paranoie tipiche dei 18anni. Mi sono piaciuti di più il racconto grottesco sugli omini verdi, il brevissimo intermezzo della moglie che pensa di uccidere il marito e la storia dei ragazzi alla colonia estiva.
I have started to read this book about five times and each time I get one more page ahead but still I stop. The storyline just doesn't really go anywhere fast. Maybe in the future, I'll give this book a sixth go, it has promise.

Recommends it for: people who don't enjoy sue grafton novels
This book meanders (even though it's short stories) without true purpose but it is an unusual look into the lives of Russian youth and an interesting read.

bello bello "Song for lovers" (il capitolo 9 soprattutto, 4 paginette straordinarie sulla dissociazione mentale), il resto...
Neil Randall
A gritty, sometimes disturbing, collection of short stories, chronicling the bleak lives of young people in post-Soviet Russian.

I expected a really good storyline, however it's trivial a lot and nothing surprising happens.
A- Very good, but translation a bit off, and confusing at times
