It always takes me a few days - days I need to build up the courage to dive into her world - to decide to read one of Ulitskaya's books, but so far I've never been disappointed.

Сквозная линия is a collection of six stories, tied together by appearances of Zenya - a mother of a three year old, a mother of two pre-teens, teenagers, a middle aged woman, grandmother - though the stories are not always about her. Every one of them balances on the thin edge between real and something else, that I have trouble giving a name to. But this perfect balance makes you feel, makes you connect the story and your own reality, makes you in the end stand there with empty hands - because there is no answer to life - and the head buzzing with thoughts, little and big.
