A lovely collection of short stories from his post-exile years. Perhaps not as consistent as I'd have liked as there are a few bits in there that just seem to be lists of things being made in a factory and the like. However, this is something you come to expect of Russian literature about that era. The title story "Apricot Jam" is wonderful and several of the stories that follow are as moving and devastating as any of his major works.
