Recommended to Lisa by: Russian bookstore in Tarzana, California
Thoroughly enjoyable stories about a boy growing up in Stalin-era Abkhazia. Iskander's child psychology feels wonderfully flawless as he describes Chik's joys, fears, and annoyances. I look forward to reading more of the stories another time.
